  2. Love:)
    Spring is usually just a
    quick whisp here and then
    recklessly slides into summer.
    I love how it stretches out long
    and sweet as I get to share it’s
    fresh arrival at different sites
    in bloggerland!
    Oh happy Spring, rachel;
    may it be the springiest ever!!!
    April love,

  16. Well I am ready to burst with spring even though it is autumn! Same thing in a way….change, transition… xo

  17. And that’s why it’s called SPRIIIIIIIIIING! (Although Fall is pretty nice too, and I don’t know why they call it that except that everything pretty much falls off…hmmm, just answered my own question…) I’m going outside to take a deep breath now.

    Here the trees in the orange orchards are blooming right now, and when you drive by you get to enjoy a heavenly smell – sweet and lemony – you pass and you yearn for more!

    I love this quote, all the more so now that I know your son said these poetic words! Spring has a funny way of holding off for so long and then slowly revealing itself, only to come forth in full bloom when you least expect it! What a lovely season and a lovely way to describe it!
