“It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.”
– John Galsworthy
Hubby took his little pocket camera out to the garden and I thought I would share a few of his finds with you.
This little fella was very willing to pose.
He is only about 2 inches in size, and oh, so cute!
Lots of his friends and relatives live here, and I am happy to see them!
These photos are all of the same little guy; I just couldn’t decide which pose to share, so I’m sharing several.
“The world’s favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.”
– Edwin Way Teale
The next photo looks like Autumn, but it is indeed a red maple in spring.
The peonies are showing a gorgeous blush!
And the bees are happily buzzing and gathering around the allium.
“An optimist is the human personification of spring.”
– Susan J. Bissonette
“Green is the fresh emblem of well founded hopes. In blue the spirit can wander, but in green it can rest.”
– Mary Webb

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. ~John Muir
