BOZEMAN, Mont.—Spring in Montana this year means an abundance of snow and skiing. I'm not sure when I'll see green.

But your world? It's far different, I learned, after we asked readers to share their signs of spring: Riots of pink and yellow and orange and green. The exception is Sarah H., who shared a photo of bear prints in the snow in Vermont – a common sight here this time of the year!

In this season of rebirth and renewal, we hope you can take a little joy in this collection of snapshots from our reader's lives.

"Absolutely insane spring fever. Zooming around the yard at 100 mph for 30 minutes."
