Springtime Activities!

     As the year continues, it’s finally time for everyone to shed their winter attire and get ready for the new season. Spring brings forth a new leaf (literally!), and nature is at its most vibrant. It’s the perfect time to go outside and explore all the wonders this new season brings. Here is a list of fun things you can do to make the most out of it! 

  • Plant something: Springtime is usually associated with flowers and growth, so now is the perfect time to discover your green thumb! Coreopsis (the state flower), Blue Daze, and Pentas are some of the easiest items to grow during this time period in Florida! These plants are all low-maintenance, and the results are flowers filled with enough color to sharpen any ordinary old yard.
  • See the cherry blossoms: While this may not seem like the most viable option in Florida, Morikami Gardens is home to cherry blossoms. These trees originate from Japan and only bloom for fourteen days in the springtime. It’s an extraordinary sight, and something recommended to see at least once in your lifetime!
  • Ride a bike: This weather is not too hot or cold to be outside, meaning it’s the perfect time to enjoy some outdoor exercise. There are plenty of activities you can do to get the most fit, but riding your bike allows you to see all the scenery while burning calories at the same time! You can have plenty of fun in Florida bike-riding with your friends or family.
