- It’s warm enough outside to go for a walk without a jacket
- Stores are showing Spring clothes
- The crocuses are out!
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” ~Robin Williams
Can flowers chirp? I don’t know why not. Writers talking about flowers screaming in bright summer colors, or whispering their final secrets in the fall. I’m good with chirping crocuses.
Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Pretty soon, not only will we have warm sun and happy crocuses, we’ll have buds on trees, and dinner on the porch, and our lawn will turn from the dead-brown of winter into something lush and green.
And by “something” I mean “weed-filled.”
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. ~Claude Monet
I know that spring also means allergies and rain and mud and eventually August heat, but right now it’s easy to forget about all that.
And to just smile back at the crocuses.
