I love Spring. I also love summer and fall and even winter. That narrows things down a little, doesn’t it? But I wouldn’t really want to live where there weren’t seasons. Where it was always warm. Where the sun shone all summer and only made cameo appearances in the winter. I love the Spring sunshine and when the flowers burst into bloom and chase away the last of the winter blues. So here are some quotes to keep you springing through Spring.
The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day He created Spring. …Bern Williams
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. …Joseph Addison
Life is like riding a bicycle. You don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling. …Claude Pepper
So hope all of you keep pedaling and have a good trip. Try to pedal past some lilac bushes and take a deep breath to get that great lilac scent all the way down to your toes. As those of you who have read my Hollyhill books know, that’s Jocie’s favorite scent. And then it won’t be long till you can roll your car window down and drive by some locust trees in bloom. Ahh! We had locust trees all over our yard where I grew up. You sometimes stepped on the locust thorns, but Spring smelled good! I love that scent just like David does. Last there’s this little green bush that grows wild out in the field. I have no idea what it is. You can’t even see it bloom unless you look really close, but boy, does it smell deliciously sweet when it is in bloom. I haven’t noticed its scent yet, but I’m always disappointed if I miss it in the Spring.
Happy lilac and locust bloom hunting. Enjoy Spring.
