Spring forward...



This weekend was so beautiful that I really have no words,
so I'm quoting the words of others...


"Everything is blooming most recklessly; 
if it were voices instead of colors, there 
would be an unbelievable shrieking into 
the heart of the night. "
Rainer Maria Rilke

Sweet Shot Day

"Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
"
Thomas Blackburn




"The flowers of late winter and early spring 
occupy places in our hearts well out of 
proportion to their size."
Gertrude S. Wister






Of course, it's sad when the 
beautiful, warm day ends...
