Spring Fever Remedy ;)

My heart is longing, longing, longing for the Spring. I know in September I vowed that I'd be happy if it was ever and anon October. I know in November I thrilled with the first flakes of snow. But now? Now I have broken my unspoken creed and follow the greening of the field across the way with an impatient eye. I notice the buds swelling on the trees and will them to pop open. I feel unreasonably vexed when snow is in the forecast. I baby the little wild violets I dug up and planted in pots on my windowsill. My heart leaps with hope at this day so bright and sunny and anticipated to be 54 degrees! And so, to anyone else up, I have decided to do a post of spring sayings and pictures. Hope it brightens your February day! :)
