This is the time of year when most of us declare the love of our gardens - the surprise, the delight in each new slender green, each new pop of color, each new amazing thing and each new incredible creature is the offset to the heaviness and heat of August. Spring is an incredible delight, year after year.

"Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers."
-  Thomas Tusser, A Hundred Good Points of Husbandry, 1557  

"Flower in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies,
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower--but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, all in all,
I should know what God and man is."
Lord Alfred Tennyson, Flower in the Crannied Wall

"Beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation.  It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon."
Oscar Wilde  


"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant 

"Anyone who has a bulb has spring.  Bulbs don't need much light; they don't need good soil; and they don't need cosseting.  They are, in fact, the horticultural equivalent of cats; self-contained, easy-care, and supremely suited to living in New York."
