I am sharing old flower photos today, because I am thinking Spring! At this time of the year, I am looking forward to visiting our local gardens again, any garden in fact. Even though I consider myself a lover of winter, the spring flowers will be a welcome sight. I guess that's why we live in a place where we can experience all the seasons, and that first spring flower is magic!
"You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming."
"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine..."
~Frances Hodgson Burnett~
"The Secret Garden"
"I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen."
"If winter comes, can spring be far behind?"
~Percy Bysshe Shelley~
"Ode to the West Wind"
"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what is is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
"The deep roots never doubt spring will come."
