In Spring, when woods are getting green,
I'll try and tell you what I mean.

- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Here is Spring in all its loveliness. Flowers I never get to see are blooming beautifully before my eyes. Even on a grey day, the bright flowers add a cheerfulness, not that I need added cheer. I am cheerful just to be here! But they are so lovely. None of these flowers could grow in Florida, so it is extra delightful to me!
