It's true!  Down here in the southern hemisphere… it's springtime.  My favourite time of year.  It's the balmy days and slightly cool nights; the huge blue skies and the first spring flower fragrances in the air.  What's not to love!

Let me share a couple of favourite springtime sayings and a poem…

"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 day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring".  ~Bern Williams
"Spring"   A poem by  Karla Kuskin
I’m shouting
I’m singing
I’m swinging through trees
I’m winging skyhigh
With the buzzing black bees.
I’m the sun
I’m the moon
I’m the dew on the rose.
I’m a rabbit
Whose habit
Is twitching his nose.
I’m lively
I’m lovely
I’m kicking my heels.
I’m crying “Come Dance”
To the fresh water eels.
I’m racing through meadows
Without any coat
I’m a gamboling lamb
I’m a light leaping goat
I’m a bud
I’m a bloom
I’m a dove on the wing.
I’m running on rooftops
And welcoming spring!

And lastly… from my favourite funnyman…  Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"  ~Robin Williams.  And isn't that the truth!

Happy springtime to you.
