nature quotes...

a good substitute for actual gardening which I am beginning to get the bug for, as white and purple crocuses are spotted across our yard, cherry trees sport new tiny pastel pink blossoms too. but we watch the rain drip drip drip today, Saturday. hard to believe tonite is daylight savings and mornings will slip to darker once again but evenings will benefit and capture that fleeting light we are so desperate for here since Fall. surely Wm Shakespeare had his own experience with long dark winters in england too, his beautiful words though:

I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
where the oxslips and the nodding violet grows.

Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
with sweet musk-rose, and with eglantine.

William Shakespeare

How poor are they who have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
