Observations of Spring

Wild Cherry Blossom Fairy, Cicely Mary Barker

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.  
~Charles Dickens

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.  
~Rainer Maria Rilke
Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

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

I love this picture. I started cross stitching this for my little girl when I was pregnant. I really should finish it some time xJ
