Spring Flings!

Regency boating party

Butterflies 2Andrea here, and very happy that here where I live, I’m beginning to see signs of Spring finally starting to push aside the chill of Winter. Leaves are budding and flowers are starting to unfurl, adding tantalizing touches of color to the muted shades of the landscape. The air is warming, allowing hats, scarves and parkas to be hung in the storage . . .

February and March always feel endless here, and I am SO looking forward to spending more time outdoors—in shorts and T-shirts!—as the days grow delightfully longer. After all the isolation of the past year, the coming warm weather feels even sweeter as we (carefully) begin to tiptoe back to some semblance of normal activities.

So, in celebration of all fun seasonal activities ahead, I thought I’d compose a list—admittedly a silly one—of all the things I love about getting outside in warm weather . . . with a Regency twist!


Garden ladyI confess, I’m not a gardener. I’m too impatient. All that digging and weeding, and then it can take several years—or centuries!—to see a garden plan come to fruition. So I’ll leave it to others to rake and fertilize and plant. However, I do love to enjoy the fruits of other people’s labor. Sitting and taking tea amidst the peaceful splendor of flowers is always a treat.

And so is walking in a public park, even if it’s crowded with others feeling the same way I do about getting fresh air and sun. One can always stop for refreshments at the colorful pavilions catering to hungry and thirsty strollers. (Champagne and strawberries, anyone?) Or maybe bring along a picnic and spread it out on the grass . . .

Bonnet satirical print People watching in the park is another fun activity. One can ooh and ahh over the latest cutting edge fashions . . . or laugh at the more eccentric looks. These days, things certainly are eclectic. (Though I think it’s time we all make an attempt to wear “normal clothes” again, rather than sweatpants and fuzzy bear tops.)

BeachThe beach is also a favorite spot for me. I love the sound of the ocean, and the sight of seabirds floating in the breeze. Walking on the sand, watching the ships sail by is a treat . . . Even better when a friend invites me boating! And maybe a swim . . . though I'm usually content to just stick my toes in the water.

Physical activity is another joy when the weather warms. Long walks enjoying the details of nature. Birdwatching, following the flights of the birds and the butterflies. (I’m very excited that a bald eagle has recently taking up residence in the harbor near me. It’s been a thrill to spot it soaring high in the sky.)

Then there are active sports—tennis, golf . . . hmm, maybe cricket? That’s a sport I’ve never tried, but spectating is a nice way to spend an afternoon, too. I’m delighted that baseball is back and look forward to catching a game at Yankee Stadium. (It’s the only time I eat hot dogs—and I’m always amazed at how wonderful they taste. It must be the bleacher seats!)

Cricket

RidingOkay, I don’t currently own a horse or country estate, but I did taking riding lessons as a kid and loved the freedom of a good gallop on the fields around the stables. On a balmy spring day, it’s a lovely way to fritter away the hours. (Riding apparel always looks so elegant. But like any skill, appearing comfortable in the saddle takes a lot of practice.)

Traveling coach
And lastly, I can't wait to pack my bags and travel again to far-off places and adventures!

Okay, so that’s my list of fun things to do when the weather warms up. What about you? What outdoor activities do you most look forward to when winter gives way to spring?

  1. I’m excited to get a little more walking/hiking in now that we are having great weather. I spent time outside this past weekend blowing bubbles with young nieces and nephews. I don’t care what age I am, bubbles never get old. 🙂

  6. I enjoy walking in public gardens and taking pictures of the flowers for a scrapbook. I really want to go to the beach this year. I love walking on the sand and collecting shells and just sitting, looking at the waves.

  11. Since we are enjoying a warm snap here in Central Ohio, I set up my screened in Porch yesterday. It didn’t take long for the cats to discover the cushions were back in place. I love to read and write out there and watch the birds coming to our feeders. I take long walks in my favorite Metro Parks, getting up early to catch the birds at there most active. Sometimes I take a stool, pad and pen, and camera, then find a quiet spot to allow nature to come to me. I’ll journal what I see. I’m not fond of gardening, but it needs to be done. Our daffodils are up and other spring flowers that my mother planted. My goal is to get the gardens to a simpler design focusing on Irises and hostas that is much easier to maintain. My husband and I will take a trip to the beach at some point, probably close to a relative’s wedding. We are probably halfway through the pandemic, so normalcy will begin to arrive in the not to far future.

  16. We have publick gardens here in Columbia, a public park with a walk way that circumnavigates a lake, a public nature trail in town, plus a state nature trail just south of town and a state park just south of town. I am not sure either of us is up to walking in then any longer.

  21. Sigh. It all sounds so good! Taking tea or dining in a nicely shaded garden would top my list,but if I had the estate, the horse, and the skills, riding out amongst my acres would be lovely!

    I love to watch the birdlife as I walk along the harbor and estuaries of Long Island Sound. There are so many species, in all shapes and sizes. I find it lovely to just watch them go about their business.
    What a lovely idea to sit in the park and let Nature come to you.
    An d love your idea of simplifying the garden to easy-care planting. I happen to love hostas and irises, Good luck with that.
    Whatever the activity, it’s just so nice to be out in the frsh air and sunshine.

  31. It sounds like you have some wonderful outdoor spots close by, Sue. What about taking a folding chair to the lake, and—as Pamela say above—just sit and watch Nature, which can be just as rewarding as walking the trails? For me, just feeling the breeze and the sun on my face is a huge lift for the spirits.

  36. I’m currently waiting for surgery and have been inside 99% of the time since last June so boy am I ready for Spring! I can’t wait to get outside and hopefully back to my usual active life. Walking in a park is one of my favourite things to do and I like to walk with my husband round the golf course but – good walk ruined – is what I think of the game. I also took horseback riding lessons for a couple of years when I was about 12 and I loved it. Tried it as an adult and it almost killed – sore for days! Happy Spring to you all!!

  41. Janet, I hope all goes well with the surgery and you are able to get outdoors SOON! Walking in a park or open land like a golf course is such a pleasure, isn’t it? Such a tonic for the spirits.
    LOL on the soreness after riding. if you don’t do it all the time, it’s very tough on the body!

  46. I just like being outside in the sun. Shortly, it will become very hot here in Austin, so spring is something to be enjoyed.
    I loved the pictures. I believe my favorite is of the coach. Wonder how many people would travel if that were the method?
    I hope everyone is taking care and staying well.

  51. I enjoy hiking, touring public gardens, and gardening. Also just sitting on my sunny patio and reading a book, watching the birds. I love the picture of the ladies playing baseball(or cricket?) in bloomers, it reminds me of a scene in one of Lisa Kleypas’s Wallflower series books.

  61. It might be Spring here in Ireland but the weather has yet to be told:) Last weekend was beautiful. We had a barbecue out back. Yesterday it snowed!!!! Unbelievable stuff for us at this time of year.
    When I read here about you wanting to visit the sea I know I’m blessed. I too love walking on the beach and I live ten minutes away from it. Our seaside also happens to have one of the longest beaches in the country. It also has a prom and
    an amusement park but if you walk far enough you can’t even hear it. Also at this time of year it’s quiet as nothing has kicked in yet (and won’t be this year at all)
    We’ve had one of the longest lock downs in the world. Seriously. On Monday, the 12th, our 5km limit will be lifted so that we can travel within our own county. Not country wide. Still, I’m excited! Can move around a bit at last.
    Enjoyed the post Andrea. I do like gardening but not into playing sport. I do like to watch it on tv though.

  66. Ouch on the snow, Teresa. Where I live in New England, early spring can be really variaable, too. I remember an Easter when we had 8 inches of snow. This past week it’s finally warmed up. Today was glorious. I was in shirtsleeves!
    Your beach sounds gorgeous. And they are always. IMO, best in off season when crowds aren’t there.
    Hooray on at least being able to move around a little. Fingers crossed that summer brings more freedom for all of us. I so miss traveling!
