"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

Springish Things

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature...,
..., the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter." ~Rachel Carson~

so the Lord has promised us, that springtime and harvest will never cease until He comes again. We are so blessed to live in this beautiful world. You see life through the eyes of an artist.

What beautiful pictures! It is still cold and windy here so it sure doesn't feel like spring yet. Your pretty spring pictures gives me hope spring is not far away here either!

Ah, sweet sweet spring. How I love its gentle call to me . . . "Come out and play"

And so I do (without regret).
