It Was One Of Those March Days...

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

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
Henry Van Dyke

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
Doug Larson

Spring is not the best of seasons.
          Cold and flu are two good reasons,
wind and rain and other sorrow,
warm today and cold tomorrow. 

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

  1. Spring is feeling these colors, wanting these flowers, loving this blog.

  2. Those first two quotes could easily describe a Melbourne autumn just as prettily, because that is EXACTLY the weather we are having at the moment.
    Hot yesterday, cold today.

    I feel a distinct 70s vibe to this selection of images, which is all fab and groovy! Love that little gold watering can. Man that is cool!

  3. This post is very appreciated! Spring has supposedly sprung, but NYC is still windy and cold. Thank you for the splash of color and a reminder of what will come....eventually.

    have i told you lately how much i love your images??

    me personally,
    i love a crazy sofa.
    i just did one the other day.
    it was a geometric and great colors.
    but i did a bright and happy jungle/garden pattern on sofas for a pair of snow birds that are coming down from montreal.

    i can't wait to see the install!!

    xxx thanks for the comment bubbymxxx

  5. Wonderful quotes to go with wonderful photos! The colours and some of those patterns are instantly spring like, has cheered me up immensely as am at home with the flu!

  6. Holy cow, now there's some color! I love that orange flowered chair and combination of greens and oranges.

  7. wonderful pairing of images and words. I like so many of your posts, Kathy. If I have to choose 3 this one will be one of them. the other two: Levender Lost and my absolute favorite: "Patience, Affection"...

  12. Kathy,

    I came here to wish a happy weekend!
    the chosen photos are very inspiring ...

  13. A great pairing of images and quotes. I love the fabrics, and I particularly like the chest or bar in the first image - it looks like stylized malachite, don't you think?

  14. The first photo you posted was such a surprise because as I scrolled down in my reader, it was mostly black and white near the top, and then WHAM! COLOR! Glad to see another posting by you.
