Celebrate Spring’s Arrival
The winter season is on its way out, which means the spring season is nearly upon us. Once spring arrives, everyone will finally be able to go outside and enjoy the warmer weather. Whether you want to go to the park or admire the blooming flowers, there is a lot you can do at the start of spring in New Jersey.
Get into the spirit of the season by taking part in one of these fun pastimes.
Go Outside: Ride a Bike or Visit the Park
Since spring finally marks the arrival of warmer weather, one of the best ways to celebrate is to simply head outside for a bit. You have probably been inside a lot during the winter, so the arrival of spring should give you an excuse to finally head out for a bit. If you own a bike, you should take it out and go for a short bike ride around your neighborhood or community.
You should also think about walking around and taking a trip to a local park. That way, you can take in the sights and get a look at the flowers as they start to bloom again. Some fun places to check out in New Jersey include the Greenwood Gardens in Essex County, as well as the Roosevelt Park in Edison.
Get Some Flowers for Your Apartment
With the arrival of spring, lots of people start planting flowers to give their homes a spring look. Lots of flowers go dormant during the winter due to the cold, but once the warm weather of spring arrives the flowers are able to bloom once more. If you rent an apartment, check with your landlord to see if it is okay to plant flowers around your home.
If it is still too cold to plant flowers outside, you can still get in the mood for spring by purchasing some flowers for inside your apartment. Stores sell a variety of flowers around this time of year, so look around and shop for ones that catch your interest. Azaleas, tulips, and daffodils are some of the New Jersey flowers you should spring for.
Set up your own indoor garden, and make a nice piece for visitors to admire. Just make sure your flowers get plenty of sun and water so they stay healthy.
Try Making Spring-Themed Art or Crafts
Are you the type of person who likes making works of art? If so, you should try making some spring-themed crafts to get into the spring spirit. There are plenty of online guides available that can help you create a wide assortment of craft projects themed around flowers and other spring-related items.
If you just feel like drawing, you should grab a sketchbook and sit outside for a little while. Get a good look at the scenery around you, and draw whatever it is you see. Draw some flowers you see nearby or, sketch a lake if you live close to one. The spring season offers plenty of inspiration for budding and veteran artists.
Get Started on Spring Cleaning
Of course, another good way to kick of spring is to get a head start on your spring cleaning tasks. Lots of people put off cleaning during the winter, mainly because it is hard to find the motivation to do so when the temperatures are at an all-time low. The warm weather and influx of fresh air that spring provides helps give people the kick needed to finally start cleaning.
Get started on your spring cleaning by giving your apartment a good dusting, and wash off all the flat surfaces. You should also get rid of any old clutter that you do not need to hold onto anymore.
