What is your favorite springtime activity?

Asked by TenaciousDenny (1139 points ) March 24th, 2009

For those of us who have braved yet another cold winter, spring is now being sprung. What outdoor activities are you looking forward to doing again?

Personally, I am looking forward to softball season and getting out and hiking some nature trails. And of course, grilling out. Mmmmmmm…

Planting veggie gardens and flower gardens are among my favorites but I just want summer to be here so I can go camping! :)

@blondie411 Lurve for mentioning baseball games. Reds Opening Day is only 13 days away! I love this time of year!!!

Sadly, it is topsy turvy where I live. Winter is when it is easiest, best and most pleasant to do outdoor activities. I like the spring, but the warming weather signals the rough four months to come from mid-June to mid-October when it is grueling outside.

Honestly, my favorite is going to the Farmer’s market. I cannot WAIT for it to be open and awesome again. And across the street. The winter market is so far away (whine, whine, a whole mile, whine).

I love outdoor festivals and markets and it just means that more outdoor activities are on the way. My boyfriend and I have tickets to 5 baseball games in April alone!

I love having people over to grill out and chill on the deck. Nothing better than sitting around with a cold beer on those nice springtime evenings.

I usually do not eat people either grilled or chilled. ; D

@Marina I should mind my wording, huh?

marinelife's avatar

@essieness It was fine. I knew what you meant. The double meaning just struck me funny, and I am looking for laughs today.

@Marina You can laugh at my expense anytime :)

I’m looking forward to hiking, maybe some crystal mining, working outside on my laptop, outdoor photography without a coat.

But my favorite activity would have to be sex under a light spring rain.
But it would be more fun if I had a woman to do it with : P

ahem, ok so now that I got fireside’s mental imagery cleared out of my brain ;)

Springtime in Western MD where I currently live = tons of flowers, seemingly everywhere.
As an amateur photographer, I stay pretty busy chronicling all the amazing changes
in nature.

I hike pretty much year-round, but the warmer weather will mean all-day hikes.
This year I hope to do some hiking down at Shenandoah National Park, and also discover more of the AT.

Right now my bike is out of commission due to a mishap, but once it’s back on the road
I’ll begin to commute to work once again.

The rest of my free time I plan to spend in my backyard…
chilling out with friends, playing fetch with my dogs, tending to my small flower garden, and mowing the lawn which I actually tend to enjoy.

Lastly, for me no discussion of spring can end without mentioning the exhiliration of going barefoot and/or wearing sandals/flip flops again!

I love planting veggies and flowers and watching them grow. I love sitting in my back yard with a beer and I love building a fire in my firepit!! I have lots of ideas for my garden this year.
