You don't want to miss a "spring" of spring. Hehehe.


Don't spring me down!

No one can "spring" you down now that winter is officially over!


What in carnation... It's spring already?!

Get it? Because carnations are a flower that typically come about more during the spring? This should probably go with a photo of carnations, or it's not really going to make too much sense.


How did the trees feel in the spring? Releaved!

Okay, yes, this is a dad joke, but it's a pretty great dad joke.


Don't stop be-leafing... warmer weather is almost here!

Spring, I think you're dandy, and I'm not lion!

This pun is brought to you by dandelions. They make for a great joke.


Pollen: When flowers can't keep it in their plants.

Honestly, these flowers need to get it together.


I'm rootin' for ya, spring weather.

As in roots like the roots of the trees and plants that will start growing right about now.


It's finally thyme for spring!

Thyme is just one of those herbs that reminds you of the spring, you know?


Spring needs to stand up to winter and kick it in the snowballs.

Seriously, just kick winter out of here already!


I'm sorry for the things I said when it was winter.

Who can blame you? Winter can be hard on the soul.


Hello spring, I lilac you a lot.

Who knew there were so many flower puns out there?


I just hopped by to wish you a happy spring.

This one ties into the Easter spirit, which works, since Easter is so early this year.


Evergreens might not mind winter, but for all the other trees, spring is a great re-leaf.

Plants everywhere are ready to bloom! This is a beautiful thing.


Spring is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf.

And you, too, should be ready to bloom. Spring really is the perfect time to start something new.


I know it just started, but spring is really starting to grow on me.

As it should.

Another thyme pun for all the gardeners out there.


Don’t stop be-leafing – it’ll be warm soon!

It usually takes a few days (or weeks, TBH) for spring to warm up, but it’s coming, y’all!


Roses are red, violets are blue. This isn’t a poem, I just really like spring flowers.

BRB, making a run to the florist right now


Here come the sunflowers.

And I say, it’s all bright.


Hope you’re all blooming with happiness this spring.

Your followers will surely appreciate the good wishes – even if they’re all punned out.
