The Arrival of Spring

All through the long winter I dream of my garden.  On the first day of spring I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth.  I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.
Helen Hayes
If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring maybe your soul has never been in bloom.
Audra Fuveo
Spring makes its own statement so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments not the composer.
Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
I love spring anywhere, but if I could chose, I would always greet it in the garden.
Ruth Stout
Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.
Proverb

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.

  2. A fitting tribute to spring. It has arrived early and in full force with warm temps and no moisture. We need some April showers. Your flowers are lovely and perfect.
