Monday Shorty – Spring Quote

Have the trees in your area started to blossom too? Here they suddenly all started to bloom, and it is so very pretty!

I originally wanted to share a photograph of blossoms with you today. But since I’m actually no great photographer, I’d rather go for a lovely quote about spring.

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

I think that this exactly describes one of the greatest joys of spring. The rain and the sun, combined in a golden and grey masterpiece. Especially when combined with the fresh scent in the air and the soft temperatures, that is pure happiness.

The quote is a passage from the children’s classic “The Secret Garden” by Frances hodgson Burnett. Which is a great book, by the way. Even for adults I think it makes for lovely reading as it is written in an enchanting style with lots of attention for all the living things around us. So if you have the chance, I’d definitely recommend you to read it.

Either way, I was going to keep this post short, so I’ll keep it at this. Please leave a comment to let me know what small thing symbolises spring to you, I’d love to hear all of your thoughts on it.

Have a great week!
