Happy Spring!



A little Madness in the spring
Is wholesome even for the King.
-- Emily Dickinson




Spring won't let me stay in this house any longer!
I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.
-- Gustav Mahler



Daisies smell-less, yet most quaint
And sweet thyme true
Primrose, first born child of Ver,
Merry Spring-time's harbinger
--Francis Beaumont


And so begins the first day of spring! I'm sorting through my seed packets, casting an eye on the weeds, admiring the budding branches, and thinking that my house needs a good spring cleaning!

Oh, the smell of fresh spring air.
Not quite yet here in Toronto.
Can't wait for those first blooms.

Happy Spring!

Lovely post about Spring. In Australia we're about to go into our Autumn, quite the reverse! Thanks for stopping by with your encouraging comments. Hope you have a great weekend.

Happy Spring to you too! I planted some seeds and pulled some weeds last week. Today, it is rainy, windy and cold. Maybe I was a little too early?! LOL
