Friday Fantastic Four - Spring Portends

I was awakened - at 5 freaking 30 am - today by the sound of birds chirping outside the window.  After I shook the cobwebs from my head, I was actually fairly pleased to realize that if birds were back in town the spring can't image from be far away.

What are the 4 best things about spring?

1. Daffodils and tulips - As a kid, we had these flowers everywhere.  My grandfather bought them by the bushel at Frank's. At my last house, we planted hundreds of daffodils. The place looks great every spring.  I missed planting in the fall, but I have put it on my calendar for this year!

2. The Phils - Even after the disappointment of last year and the mysterious acquisitions of Ben Revere and Delmon Young, I am still excited by the sounds of spring training on the radio.  Can't wait!

3. Open Windows - I love to sleep with the windows open.  Winter in this area makes that pretty tough, so some fresh air will be welcome.

4. Marshmallow Peeps - While Just Born now has a year-round supply of marshmallow treats for us addicts, there is still something perfect about a Peep!

How about you?  What are you looking forward to about spring time?
