Many of us have long been awaiting the early signs of spring. We’ve anticipated trading parkas for raincoats, opening the windows to let in that fresh spring breeze and for that wet, cold abomination known as “snow” to become nothing but a distant memory. April has finally arrived and brought with it the changing of seasons; the world outside is coming alive, and spring is officially in the air.
I often feel that spring is underappreciated. To many people, spring simply serves as a placeholder between winter and summer, not as an important season. But in my opinion, spring is the greatest season of all! It seems like we have to wait an extra long time every year for spring to show its face – if you’re like me, you’re ready for spring to get here as soon as Christmas is over – but when it finally does, there’s no arguing that the result is magical.
To illustrate this magic, I’ve compiled some of my favorite springy comics, which show all of the wonderful things there are to love about spring.
1. Spring is the season of flying kites (or attempting to).
2. The chance to garden again … and celebrating that however you see fit.
3. Rainy days …
… Which, more importantly, lead to puddle jumping!
4. An end to being teased by Spring Training; MLB Opening Day is finally upon us!
5. The majestic smells of nature return.
6. Our favorite furry friends come out of hibernation.
Now that you’ve seen the beauty of spring through the eyes of our GoComics characters, there’s no denying its magic! So, what are you waiting for? Get outside and enjoy it already!
