Mmmm, smells like Spring!

Is there anything that smells as glorious as fresh-mown grass?

It takes twice as long to walk home as it does to walk to class when it's this beautiful outside.

Other things I love about spring right now: the way dandelions have taken over my neighbors' lawns, the tiny white and violet flowers that peep out from around the grass on slender ballerina-necks, the fact that the tree by our sidewalk has enough leaves to cast a shadow on our yard, the perfect counterpoint between cool breeze and warm sun, the way the air actually feels different from any other season, the giddy energy that wells up in everyone, the clean-washed blue of the sky, the way the light looks at four o'clock, both warm and gentle at the same time.
