Nature’s awakening makes spring “the only pretty ring time”

If you’ve been planning a marriage proposal, spring – says Shakespeare – is the perfect moment to give that ring.

When’s the most romantic season for a marriage proposal? If you asked William Shakespeare there is, according to his play As You Like It, only one time: “In the spring time, the only pretty ring time; When birds do sing, hey ding a ding; Sweet lovers love the spring.” So, as winter draws to a close and nature stirs from its seasonal slumber, for those darling buds of May plotting a marriage proposal, now could be the time to buy that engagement ring.
