Happy Spring!

 Spring is nature's way of saying,
"Let's Party!"  

                                                                            ---Robin Williams

Well, I'm ready to celebrate spring!   Let's get this party started!
Unfortunately  it is 25 degrees below normal temperatures for this time
of year here  in South Jersey, and this year's bloom are late.

"The first day of spring is one thing 
and the first spring day is another. 
The difference between them
 is sometimes as great as a month."
--- Henry Van Dyke

But soon, I know these flowers will come out,  just  like last year.

Nature is a painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty
if only we have eyes to see them."--- John Ruskin

"Flowers always make people, happier and more helpful,
 they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul."
---Luther Burbank

So, yes, these are last year's flowers and I'm anticipating them soon, once again.
I'm enjoying looking at my pictures, just like I love drooling over seed catalogs!  

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

"Spring's greatest joy beyond a doubt, 
is when it brings the children out. " 
---Edgar Guest

Tommy didn't care if it was chilly today!
 We played outside  for a little bit anyway!

Happy Spring!
