Spring officially arrives today, earlier than it’s been in over a century –> a bit of good news for a change. ;) Spending time outdoors and in nature can be grounding in these uncertain times.
There’s comfort in knowing no matter what life brings our way, spring will always come, so I picked some inspirational quotes and a little flower therapy to send your way.
“That is one good thing about this world… There are always sure to be more springs.”
– L.M. Montgomery
“Blossom by blossom the spring begins.”
– Algernon Charles Swinburne
“Spring will come and so will happiness. Hold on. Life will get warmer.”
– Anita Krizzan
“No matter how chaotic it is, wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of nowhere.”
– Sheryl Crow
“Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.”
– Theodore Roethke
“The beautiful spring came, and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.”
– Harriet Ann Jacobs
“Where flowers bloom so does hope.”
-Lady Bird Johnson
“A flower blossoms for its own joy.”
“Despite the forecast, live like it’s spring.”
“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
