"The gloom of the world is but a shadow.
Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy...
Take joy!"

"That's my philosophy. Wouldn't you agree?"

SPRING IS IN THE AIR....







"Cool as glass,
Fresh without fragrance,
The tulip was."
Humbert Wolfe






"Rise and put on your foliage,
And be seen to come forth,
Like the spring-time,
Fresh and green... ."
Robert Hickman







"Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south!
And the orchard bloom is falling,
Sweet as kisses on the mouth."
Lucy Maud Montgomery, "Spring Song"








"To be refreshed by a morning walk
Or an evening saunter...
To be thrilled by the stars at night;
To be elated over a bird's nest
Or a wild flower in spring -
These are some of the rewards
Of a simple life."
John Burroughs



Rejoice in the first day of Spring...

    The stone bridge with flowing water and Robin on the birdbath are gorgeous. I wish Spring would stop teasing us here.

  11. hello

    Le printemps
    Le temps a laissé son manteau
    De vent, de froidure et de pluie,
    Et s’est vêtu de broderie
    De soleil luisant, clair et beau.
