The Year's At The Spring

And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's 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


What is my world like now?
Warming up! Cool mornings and pleasant afternoons and plenty of color abounds . . .
















And with that color . . . .









Pollen . . .




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

Such beautiful photos. I'm so glad that pollen doesn't bother me. It would put a damper on the enjoyment, no?

Thanks for your quotes. Thanks for the beautiful Robert Browning poem too! And I have springfever too. That results in a fierce attack of springcleaning. Have a great week!

I love spring! With all the colors blooming and sprouting and growing... it is so exciting. I even enjoy the pollen. I know I'm weird, but it is a promise of goodness to come. I have been blessed with no allergies, so the coats of yellow all over everything is interesting.
Thanks for showing the beauty!

I love spring. By the time it settles in in Connecticut, I am so ready for it I am dancing in the streets. Thanks for reminding me of what it looks like it. I'll recognize it when it comes.
