Welcome to the Celebrating Spring giveaway! It seems like no time at all since we were talking about the holidays and now we are talking about spring! This giveaway is to mark one of the most wonderful seasons, officially due to start on 20 March 2016, though we all know that seasons rarely keep to such a strict timetable!
This time of year always seems full of such hope and promise. I hope the quotes I’ve chosen for the post below reflect that and I’d love to hear some of your favorite words or be directed to some of your favorite images in celebration of this wonderful season.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.
~ Hal Borland
Spring is the time of plans and projects.
~ Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.
~ Kobayashi Issa, Poems
Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.
~ Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
~ A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young
