Where I live, winter is still trying to hang on. Yesterday we had a beautiful spring-like day, and I told you about the daffodils that are starting to bloom–yay!
Today is another story: the skies are gray, the temperature is 28 degrees cooler, and rain is predicted. In the face of this, here are a few quotes about flowers that can bolster our hope that spring is, in fact, “winning” over winter. There’s one quote for each day of this week…plus and extra one for good luck! Enjoy!
