Spring Fe-fe-fe-Ver!!!

La-Tea-Dah at Gracious Hospitality inspired this post on SPRING!

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

The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven-
All's right with the world! ~~Robert Browning

If you have never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.
~~Audra Foveo

Spring has returned! The earth is like a child that knows poems.
~~Rainer Maria Rilke

That God once loved a garden we learn in Holy writ.
And seeing gardens in the spring I well can credit it.
~~Winifred Mary Letts

At the sea's shore, where I long to be
The sand and the waves they beckon me.
~~the Sunshine Girl (me, silly!)

Hope you feel the refreshing breath of spring blowing your way!!

Joyful blessings,

    Thanks Becky, for the glimpses into Spring. I know it's coming, but after a night of ice and snow paralyzing our state, it's easy not to believe:) But the salt trucks were out overnight and things are movimg again!

    I believe, I believe:))

  9. Becky, Thank you for visiting my blog. As for the rock climbing.....I must confess...I was laying horizontal and my husband took the picture to make it look like I was really climbing. It was a joke for my daughter.
