Springtime on Mayne

"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush."
-Doug Larson

"To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring."
-George Santyana

"Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment!"
-Ellis Peters

Grateful today for the first tangible signs of spring in my backyard.  How is it in your country?


  1. Are those pictures what is currently going on for you on the island? Jealous, if so. We are brown with very very few shoots of anything green... but it's coming, I can feel it...

    I like the quote about the seasons. That's a goody.

    1. Yes, I just took those photos this past week. I need to be out there now every day. Have to fertilize and prepare all my trees before I go. Nothing quite like seeing the good stuff coming up.
