MEMORIES OF SPRING FLOWERS

"I must have flowers always and always."
~Monet~
"The promise of Spring's arrival is enough to get anyone through the bitter winter."
~Jen Selinksy~
"Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm."
~John Muir~
"If we had no winter, the Spring would not be so pleasant."
~Anne Bradstreet~
"No winter lasts forever, no Spring skips its turn."
~Hal Borland~
"No matter what the forecast, live life like it's Spring."
~Lily Pulitzer~


For those of us in colder climes, I hope you have enjoyed this 'harbinger of spring' post.  I took all my photos during several spring-times.  You can see daffodils, Dutchman's Breeches (the ones that look like upside-down pantaloons), snowdrops and daffodils.

I enjoy all four seasons where we live.  I may whinge a bit during the height of summer, when my face turns all shade of pinks and blotchy purples during the most humid weather.  This has not changed in the 43 years I have experienced summers in the States, but generally I love all aspects of each season.  

I especially love to see the flowers during the warmer months, and Spring is always a favorite as we see the first sight of them after the winter, and the butterflies they bring, and the bees.  I shall be ecstatic to see the first flowers bloom, the first butterfly, the first bee, and I will be ready with my camera.

I thought I would leave you with this clever little word art.  I found it online but it did not have the name of the person who created it unfortunately.

Enjoy your day everyone, and thanks for stopping by.

  2. Yes, I love the changing seasons! Each one so different. The longest wait is for spring, and the flowers. I love the word art, I read it all. What is the huge red and white flower? It is so showy and gorgeous!

    1. I think they are called a frilly tulip Ginny, those red and white flowers. I wish I could remember more about them. I have tried to find them again on line but have had no luck.

  3. Well, I appreciate your hope for flowers fairly soon. It does make me feel hopeful but it's a long time before I'll see flowers.

  4. I adore spring and am in the midst of ordering bulbs to plant. Summer? No. The other seasons are a joy though.

  6. We need all seasons; what a bore life would be without them. The artistic butterfly poem is brilliant. I could never do that, could you?
