You see, back when we lived in Virginia, spring was just started to peek out of winter's grip around this time of year. And it was always fun to look back through our spring flower pictures to see if this year's appearance was sooner or later than previous years. 

Now that we are in Florida, spring shows up a whole lot sooner! Even so, we are continuing the tradition of documenting the arrival of spring with our "Signs of Spring" reference journals. 

And I thought that you would enjoy making one, too! 

So in today's post, we are sharing some free printables and directions for keeping your own record of what in my humble opinion is the best season of every year!

Signs of Spring Journal Directions

You should begin making your journals as soon as you start to notice the appearance of the typical spring flowers.

Once you start to spot these, print out a few pages and start recording! Basically, you will:

  • Write down the date, what you have found, where you found it, and a sentence or two about the subject.
  • Then, snap a photo to glue on the page later, or draw your own.
  • Once, the season is over, you can staple the book together and tuck it away to reference next year.

It's that simple!
