Spring Season English: 5 Spring Idioms + Springtime Vocabulary

Yesterday was the first day of Spring! 

I love spring because it means warmer weather and flowers start to bloom. I’m currently in Croatia and I took this photo of the flowers there. Let me share with you a few spring season idioms and keywords we use around springtime.

Spring season Idioms

  1. Spring fever

    Spring fever is any change in mood or behavior which is experienced with the start or spring. Usually a feeling of restlessness and excitement because spring is coming, and the weather is getting warmer.

    Example: I can’t wait for warmer weather, I have spring fever.

     

  2. To spring to life

    To suddenly start moving and become very active or busy.

    Example: This town springs to life in summer.

     

  3. Spring cleaning

    To thoroughly clean a place, especially in springtime.

    Example: Today I’m going to spring clean my kitchen.

     

  4. April showers bring May flowers

    Spring time can be a time of rain, but the “fruit” of the rain is the beautiful blossoms we experience in the middle of Spring.

    Example: “Wow, it’s rainy this month!” “Well as they say: April showers bring May flowers.”

     

  5. Spring Chicken

    to be young and full of life and energy.

    Example: I’m no spring chicken! I can’t climb that mountain. (note the grammar is not correct, but the phrase is stronger in this format. A grammatically correct way to say this would be: I’m not a spring chicken.
