FLOWERS IN THE SPRING

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."
~Pablo Neruda~
"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."
~Anne Lamott~
"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!"
~Mark Twain~
"The deep roots never doubt spring will come."
~Marty Rubin~

  23. I’m happy to miss the cold damp winters of Oregon for as long as we can do it, but I do miss the magic of those first Spring flowers. Yours ... and your quotes ... are wonderful.
