Default What represents Spring in North Dakota to you?

I'm stumped. I am doing an art swap with a gal in England - one of the challenges is to buy/make something that represents Spring where I live, which obviously is in ND. lol.

So...what comes to YOUR mind? So far all I can think of is snow, because thats the mindset I'm in right now Late spring I think of MUD. and more MUD. I suppose I could just do a brown ATC .... But I digress.....

Your turn.

I grew up in Rugby, ND and around our house Tulips were always the first thing out of the ground when spring came, if my memory hasn't deceived me....

In Fargo, it's the first week in May when older sections of the city are in a pink cloud of blossom and fragrance from the crabapples in bloom.

For this year, especially, get her one of those "United We Sand" T-shirts that are being sold as a fundraiser to help people affected by the flooding in the state.

North Dakota has a spring? I only remember an eight month winter followed by May, June, July, and August. When temps are in the 70s and 80s during Feburary and March in the gulf region, I realize how little I miss North Dakota's weather.

What I remember about spring: Having to rake all the decaying leaves that were uncovered when the snow melted.

Green- after a long winter, when you see trees budding you know that the worst is finally over.
