inside of four and twenty hours."

when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."

"I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, 
I will always plant a large garden in the spring...


...Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature’s rebirth?" 
-Edward Giobbi

"It’s spring fever. 


...That is what the name of it is.... 


...And when you’ve got it, you want -....



....– oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,


...but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" 
-Mark Twain

 The unmistakable sign of SPRING:
 Flocks of cranes...

 

...coming from their southern winter quarters...
...heading North...


...passing La Pouyette...
as every year!

"Spring makes its own statement, 
so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, 
not the composer."  

-Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

As the day draws to a close, 


 ...it's time to reflect and to dream....



...in harmony with a beautiful Spring sunset.

"In springtime,love is carried on the breeze.
Watch out for flying passion or kisses whizzing by your head."

    1. No idea, dear Andie! Oskar is fascinated about everything in the garden, everything what moves, and he loves to join me in garden work.....but - to be honest - he's rather useless/hopeless when it comes to pruning and weeding! :)

  2. Your beautiful images capture the many moods of spring in your charming garden. ( I have garden envy). I love Vivaldi's Four Seasons - it's frequently heard wafting through our house as it perfectly encapsulates the mood of each season.
    Like Oscar, Hugo (our kitten) is extremely observant. He is fascinated by the smallest of insects, the flutter of the leaves and any bird he can see. This is Hugo's first autumn so he is in wonder with the falling of the leaves.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. XXX
