Why I love spring time

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

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

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

And that is why I love spring

We have waited so long for that spring to arrive ~ we deserve it! Looks like you are way ahead of me though ~ I'm still waiting for the blossoms to show up. But I had my first Finch at the bird feeders today! 5 of them actually. Hooray!

I love the tranquilizing quote, never thought of it that way, but nature is a tranquilizer for me. beautiful flowers in your photos.

So pretty! Ours have already bloomed, and the blooms have falles. I wish everything could flower continuously :) But then...I guess these moments wouldn't be so speical if they occurred every day!

I love spring and am so happy it is here. My favorite part is a get to stop paying for heat. It may get a little cold but I refuse to fold.

Erika said...

Ann, these are gorgeous! Definitely something that I would have up in my house in a frame.

Wonderful stuff! It's like spring just exploded in a couple of days.

Karen said...

Is that a tulip tree in your yard? We had two but for some reason, one of them died. I don't know what happened. Luckily, the other one is alright and bloomed beautifully this year. I was afraid the one that died had a bug that would get the other one but it didn't.
