Synonyms of "Spring" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between last spring and this spring ?
A: for me to indicate between the two, I personally would say “last spring,” would indicate spring 2018.

And, If I’m speaking about spring 2019 I would say...

“this recent spring,” I think “this spring,” could also work.. but if anything causes confusion you can always let them know “this spring that just passed (or recently passed),” indicating the recent spring season.

I hope this makes sense. ✨✨😊
Q: What is the difference between in spring and in the spring ?
A: After checking a few opinions of other English speakers online, these are the points I found:
- Generally, it should be fine to use either in most cases
- You must use “the” when referring to a specific summer, eg “In the spring of ‘84”
- British English speakers tend to omit “the”, while American English speakers tend to use it
- With a sentence like “Summers (meaning “every summer), I work at the library”, it would not work to have “The” before it
- This is something that most English speakers aren’t sure about ourselves, and we tend to use “the” or no “the” depending on which set phrase we are using and what area we are from, so it’s just a matter of time and picking up the phrases

So I think there is no big difference in general, but in your example, it seems to be more poetic/romantic to me to leave out “the”
Q: What is the difference between “As much as I enjoy the spring, it's not long until my allergies start to get to me. “ and “As much as I enjoy the spring, it's not long before my allergies start to get to me. “ ?
