I just realized what today is !! Rex Barker reminded me.

This week we focus on SPRING...

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"- Robin Williams

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.- Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.- Christopher Morley

Hoe while it is spring, and enjoy the best anticipations. It is not much matter if things do not turn out well.- Charles Dudley Warner

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in a bad mood. Wait Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.- Robert H. Schuller

The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.- Therese of Lisieux

One swallow does not make a spring; nor does one fine day.- Aristotle

In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.
- Mark Twain

An optimist is the human personification of spring.- Susan J. Bissonette

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.- Rainer Maria Rilke

In spring time, love is carried on the breeze. Watch out for flying passion or kisses whizzing by your head.- Emma Racine deFleur

When Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil.- Bishop Reginald Heber

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.- Virgil A. Kraft

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!- Mark Twain

Wishing you all a HOPEFUL Spring Weekend.

Come on Spring!!! I am really enjoying all the trees and flowers coming back to life. Just wish the allergies weren't getting in the way of my fun. Great quotes!

Gramma Ann said...

I love Spring, and the Mark Twain quote is so true about the many different kinds of weather in 24 hours. And I agree with Robin Williams...Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" Have a great week-end!

Wanda said...

What a lovely way to start spring.

Patty, sorry I've been so behind in my commenting....

Think of you often....still waiting for my surgery date.

Love and Hugs


The optimist quote is beautiful! I love that one.

I am so ready for spring, but here the chill will not go away, the weather man says in the 40s & 50s but the wind chill says 20s. Hope you and your family have a great weekend, take care and be safe.

Denise said...

How lovely, always a lot of wisdom in these quotes and I do thank you for sharing them. Have a great weekend and Happy Spring!

Rosy said...

Regardless at how lousy I have been feeling with this virus I always manage to take in the wonderful colors of spring everywhere...even if it is in people blogs!

I like the first one the best by Robin Williams.

Renie Burghardt said...

Oh, these are all great quotes, Patty. And I sure agree with the one about the gardener just being one of the instruments instead of the composer. After digging a long row and planting some curly leafed lettuce and spinach for salads, all I can say is "ouch!"

Happy First Day of Spring, Patty.
