"Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle....a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream."
~ Barbara Winkler
First the pinks....from the lovely magnolias to the cherry blossoms, to the crab apple and the redbuds.
"Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day."
~ W. Earl Hall
"If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall." ~ Nadine Stair
And the oranges and yellows.....
This was a orange/peach color quince but when I uploaded it to blogger it changed the color, blogger has also changed many of the pinks to almost purples. Anyone else having this issue?? Technology, it's great when it works the way you expect, but this is discouraging. (Sorry about the complaint in the middle of this post, but I have never had that happen to me in the past)
We can't forget the white blossoms that are as stunning as the colors....
"Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment." ~ Ellis Peters
And finally, the lilacs are in bloom. Really early for these beauties to be bursting. I wonder what May will bring since the colors of April have been so dazzling.
I think this quote from Virgil A. Kraft pretty well sums up my feelings on Spring.....
"Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world."
