Spring Quote

At last the weather today looks like we can expect Spring to arrive at any time, certainly after the terrible storms that have hit the UK recently I was beginning to doubt we would ever get a Spring. But there are some very positive signs showing in the gardens now as you can see from the photos below, so I thought today would be appropriate to put up my Spring Quote - hope you like it.

'Tis like the birthday of the world,
When earth was born in bloom;
The light is made of many dyes,
The air is all perfume:
There's crimson buds, and white and blue,
The very rainbow showers
Have turned to blossoms where they fell,
And sown the earth with flowers.

—Thomas Hood
