"Spring Blessings" with Kari & Kijsa

Kari and Kijsa at Ask Kari and Kijsa are stirring up some "wonderfulness" in the sweet blogging community. They are hosting a "Spring Blessings" tribute and I feel inclined to leap into the frolic! I've laid out my welcome mat to SPRING and to guest!

The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.
-Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness
as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods.
-Edith Wharton

A Spring Limerick

There was a young lady of Leeds
Who swallowed six packets of seeds;
In a month, silly lass,
She was covered in grass
And she couldn't sit down for the weeds!

A blooming pot of tea...

A retired nest...

When Birds Were Songless

When birds were songless on the bough
I heard thee sing.
The world was full of winter, thou
Wert full of spring.

To-day the world's heart feels anew
The vernal thrill,
And thine beneath the rueful yew
Is wintry chill.

-William Watson 1858-1935

The pink snowflakes? I didn't stick out my tongue in the dream...but if i happens again I'll be sure to!
The catfish story...I think I probably came close to crying...probably a loud whine!

Thank you so much for posting the butterfly fold. I left a comment below...just running behind.

Wish I knew how to write a limerick! Great prize!
