Mine are on Spring... since its been almost 80 degrees and sunny here!

"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

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." ~Charles Dickens

"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 it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" ~Mark Twain

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ~Anne Bradstreet

"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"

"Is it so small a thing To have enjoy'd the sun, To have lived light in the spring, To have loved, to have thought, to have done..."
-- Matthew Arnold

"Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart."
-- Victor Hugo

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems." ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Mmmm spring is my favorite season :) Coming from Minnesota it was an oasis after a long tundra of a winter. Now living in Florida I dont feel much difference weather wise, but just the thought of spring is relaxing. Loved the quotes!
