Spring Has Sprung


Hi, everyone.

Several weeks ago, I was sitting outside with a book, as I often do, and I was suddenly overcome by the gentle beauty of the world caressed in spring’s sweet embrace. I ran inside to grab my camera, and snapped these photos in my own backyard, inspired by the grace and delicate beauty of the world in springtime. I hope you enjoy this compilation of spring photos and quotes, and I hope they inspire you to get outside and take notice of the beauty of nature as the world awakens from its long, wintry sleep.


“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!'” ~Robin Williams


“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.” ~Virgil Kraft


“Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.” ~Gustav Mahler


“See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come.” ~Song of Solomon 2:11-12


“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke


“Awake, thou wintry earth – fling off thy sadness! Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth your ancient gladness!” ~Thomas Blackburn, An Easter Hymn


“The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing.” ~Isaiah 35:1-2
