Spring - it's a magical time of the year. You get to be surprised by all kinds of stuff randomly popping up and out at you in all directions. I especially like observing trees - they become magicians pulling brilliantly colored handkerchiefs out of their sleeves.
The best part of spring is that you forget how pale everything looked the day before. In fact it makes me forget how pale I looked the day before - though I sure do pale in comparison to everything out there now.
