Pookie suffers from severe spring fatigue the whole year !

On March 20 spring began officially and lasts until end of May, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere. Our Australian friends now instead settle down for their winter sleep.

But what happens so special in spring ? We all wake up or should at least and realize that the days are longer the sun comes out and the nature gets crazy !

Some humans are feeling depressed and retire in their deep black hole and call it (spring) seasonal depression others are coming out of their holes because their's is finished (automn-winter depressions). Some others are suffering from strong spring fatigue and feel weak, tired and without any energy.

Floodings, hails and thunderstorms happen in spring.

But then trees get leaves and the flowers come out, nature begins to take color.

Boys begin to look even more as usual at girls and men discover that there are other women to look at in streets and parks than their own one.

Girls do the same but more discreet. That's called sexual equality.

Cats are laying in the sunshine and sing operas during nights looking at the moonshine

Dogs try to climb over the fences to find a partner especially when she smells so good. Dog owners are doing skateboard on the street pulled by their dogs running behind a nice looking (and smelling) dog girl.

Horses forget that they have a human to carry and ran after a horse lady, while the human gathers his limbs and gets slowly up. (mostly swearing)

Cows are laying in the grass and leak each other tenderly until a bull springs over the fence

Windows are cleaned and you suddenly realize that a new neighbor has moved in. Curtains are washed and the room looks much brighter. Housewives get crazy and clean from morning till evening the home from top to bottom.

Men suddenly discover that their car has to be cleaned from the winter dirt and salt. They cut everything available in the garden and dig holes for flowers and plants. Women too of course again equality.

Shops and boutiques are full of the new spring collections and women look for new feathers and claws.

Birds are arriving from far and settle down to built their nests. The once which stayed here do the same.

Early mornings you wake up and spring (or fall) out of your bed because of the bird's singing. In town of course less, but there is the traffic noise coming through the open window.

Hairs are cut and shaved off the whole body.

Babies are created Couples get married (not necessarily in this order) Spring feelings are in the air !
