There are so many things I love about the early days of spring. I like seeing the buds start to appear on the trees in my neighborhood. I enjoy the fresh daffodils, stepping into rain puddles, and thinking of how to organize my vegetable garden. This week, I’ve gathered together some of my favorite quotes to add to the spring celebration.

and the soil and sky as canvas.” -Elizabeth Murray

the flowering of my cherry trees.” –Frances Hodgson Burnett
