 « Il y a quelques rencontres dans la vie où la vérité et la simplicité 
sont le meilleur manège du monde. » ~ Jean de La Bruyère

"Weather is a great metaphor for life — 
sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, 
and there's nothing much you can do about it 
but carry an umbrella or choose to dance in the rain!" 
~Terri Guillemets

“Listen as the budding trees dance in tepid showers,
Dreaming of the day they'll see the blooming summer flowers.” 
~ Amelia Dashwood

"Nature’s first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf’s a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay."

~ Robert Frost, Nothing Gold Can Stay

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. 
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."  ~ Helen Keller

When I planted sixty-four pink and white bulbs last fall, I dreamed of enjoying bunches of blooms. Instead, I have one perfectly beautiful tulip and 15 more buds that still haven't revealed their potential. Fingers crossed!
