Spring arrived in Georgia in mid-April. I had the joy of seeing fresh blossoms again in Alaska in late April. It was such a surprise to view spring blooms yet again in Germany just last week. During my stay I took a couple of walks into the German village close to the conference hotel. Here are some of the sites of my third spring this year:

Every spring is the only spring--a perpetual astonishment. ~Ellis Peters

Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil. ~Bishop Reginald Heber

Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

No winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring will come again. ~Sarah Ban Breathnach

Recently someone pointed out that I must like the color green. I didn’t have to think twice to respond in the affirmative. Not only is it a happy color, but green represents life and growth. These are two things I want to characterize my life–no matter my age. I looked around my house and noticed that I am indeed drawn to the color green. Do you think these samples ¬†are indicators?
I'm thinking this purse is fun and cute.
