"Early oats greened over the red fields;
apple orchards flung great blossoming arms about the farmhouses
and the Snow Queen adorned itself as a bride for her husband."
"Anne liked to sleep with her window open
and let the cherry fragrance blow over her face all night.
She thought it very poetical. Marilla thought she was risking her life."
"It seems to me, Marilla, that a pearl of a day like this,
when the blossoms are out,
and the winds don't know where to blow from next
for sheer crazy delight,
must be pretty near as good as heaven."
(L.M. Montgomery) Anne of the Island
