Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” ~ Robin Williams

Daffodil bud

I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature’s rebirth?
~Edward Giobbi

New life unfurling

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Sensitive Plant”

Driving through herbs

Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”

New buds on the blueberry bushes

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.
~W. Earl Hall

Charlotte happy with her lavender posy

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
~L.H. Bailey

First green buds on the silver birch tree

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.
~Virgil A. Kraft

Sweet bud of spring

The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other.
~Arthur Rubenstein

Swinging into Spring

‘Ba ba, ma ma, dribble and drool, did someone say Spring?!’
~Alice (6 and a half months)

Alice rocking into Spring

Let us take a walk along the garden path and dance amongst the pansies.

Dance amongst the pansies

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~Virgil A. Kraft
