The Pursuit Of Spring
We’re a divided lot, those that are carrying on regardless, Claire over at Claireallotment’s Blog I’m looking at you, and those of us tucked up in doors with a copy of Grow Your Own magazine hoping for a warmer day before we start to sow. On this the first day of Spring it remains resolutely icy.
These pictures taken five weeks ago could just as easily have been shot today.
I read this today in The Guardian and loved the final quote taken from The Pursuit of Spring by Edward Thomas.
‘It is not yet spring. Spring is being dreamed, and the dream is more wonderful and blessed than ever was spring.’
As Matthew Oates says in the article – perfect for for the first day of Spring 2013.
