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

It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.
John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga

    So delicate. Wishing you a great weekend Janet.

  2. Dan Antion says:

    I’m loving all the signs of spring. Thanks for sharing this one, Janet.

  3. Lovely little blossom and great Spring Quotes.

  4. I loved the Forsyte Saga, part of which actually won the Nobel prize for literature in 1918, I believe it was. They actually printed an obituary for Soames Forsyte in the London Times when his character died–and lovely photo. Thank you.

  5. Leya says:

    Beautiful, Janet – and I loved The Forsyte Saga. I think the entire population of Sweden did.

  6. JT Twissel says:

    Lovely – thanks for sharing! Happy Spring to you!

    Beauty like this makes spring worth waiting for!

  8. Stunning flower and photograph. Your skills are definitely showing in this one. 🙂

    What a beautiful flower and the Galsworthy quote ended the post perfect – you opened with the Twain – had your gorgeous photo with bloom to the right – and then the pockmark
    Ending – giving us also the reminder to celebrate the spring delight – even though here in Virginia we have way late spring and it feels almost a bit like summer with some hot days this week – but much to soak up

    • Good morning, Yvette. (It’s still morning here, although a bit into afternoon for you.) Spring is bouncing all over the place here, chilly one day, hot the next, rainy most of them. I think we’re moving more into summer temperatures but of course it’s quite humid. I didn’t realize you lived in Virginia. Haven’t really spent much time there, but I understand it’s beautiful and naturally there’s lot of history there.

      Have a wonderful weekend.

        Hi – and hope your day is going well.
        And the weather has been all over the place here too – but the hot days have arrived (went indoors to cool off twice this week – so that says a lot).
        and yes – a lot of history here – there is a joke that in Virginia you can see something from “1865” every single day.
        It is green and lush in Virginia (Zone 7) but also a lot of mold spores (heard a stranger talking to someone in a store and she said she was moving out of VA because her allergies cannot take it) – we also have lots of spiders (we are the spider state) and then lots of tics (and recently your nice reminders to be mindful of tics have been important – I think people – including myself – have minimized their danger – but now I get it – and one huge thing we do is shower real quick after being outdoors for any length of time – )

  10. Exquisite little bloom and extraordinary Spring Quotes.Stunning blossom and photo. Your aptitudes are certainly appearing in this one.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
