Birds singing.
The general improvement in the colours (plants/trees) and light.
This is an odd one and not really 'nature' related! But, people who own scooters seem to start using them again in spring, and the scooter sound reminds me that summer is not that far away!
Other people, and my own mood improves, (plus there's the lack of moaning about how bitterly cold and 'dark' it is!).
Sunlight 'catching'.
The air feels 'crisper' (and more forgiving!).

(It's almost time to stop having to wear a coat, I love spring!)

Probably the smell. I love the smell of the seasons, even winter.
Yes! :lol:
Spring smells the best for me: sweet, green, fresh, electric, warm, slightly earthy.

Aside from that, my favourite sign is seeing the buds just beginning to break open on the Hawthorn. They're starting to do that right now around these parts.

Lilacs blooming everywhere and people wearing shorts just because it's 50 degrees.
