~If Spring came but once a century instead
of once a year, or burst forth like an earthquake
and not in silence, what wonder and expectation
there would be in all the hearts to behold the
miraculous change.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

~O the green things growing,the green things
growing, the faint smell of the green things
growing! I should like to live, whether I
smile or grieve , just to watch the happy life
of MY green things growing!
~Dinah M. Craik

Cat, I love these photos..this is such an exciting time of the year, watching things emerge from the ground. Your photos really capture the joy of this time of the year. You have also inspired me to get out there and take some of my own photos of emerging growth...
