Spring is finally here! After a long, cold winter, there is nothing more refreshing than seeing new leaves bud and flowers in bloom. Spring has always represented the season of renewal and joyful change, and it seems like everyone is just a little bit happier come springtime. Vibrant colors, fresh smells, and resurgent life have long inspired quotes on the hardiness and beauty of nature, and within us. Sow seeds, bask in the warm rays from the sun, and let’s welcome spring with open arms!
Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’
The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.
-Harriet Ann Jacobs
Earth, teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life. Earth, teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall. Earth, teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone. Earth, teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
No matter how chaotic it is, wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of nowhere.
They say it’s better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green.
Don’t forget! It’s daylight savings time. You spring forward, then you fall back. It’s like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed.
I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture.
