Spring is my favourite season. The sense of renewal, rebirth, birdsong, the cocktail of scents wafting on the breeze, trees waking from their long slumber …

“It is Spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”

Winter … A Different Perspective

It’s been a long harsh winter here in my part of southern Australia with low minimum temperatures recorded. Winter being my least favourite season, the cold and greyness has seemed never ending. This week, I re-discovered these words from Lewis Carroll … so beautiful.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
~ Lewis Carroll
