Spring!

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"

It's springtime in New Orleans! You can tell because the thermometer is creeping into the 80s (helloooo, flip flops!), the sunlight last until 8 o'clock, and the azaleas at the front of campus have burst into loud displays of color.

The other day DeAnna made the kids' yearbook photos behind the Frost Building and I was so enthralled with the blossoms that I went home to get my camera and capture some moments with the kids wandering through the little garden.



If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri Guillemets





The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring. ~Bern Williams







Someone saw me for the first time in a while the other day and said something to the effect of "My you've really blossomed!" I can't decided whether I love people who are so eloquent in their mention of my burgeoning belly or those who simply spurt out what they're REALLY thinking! Ha, ha! Either way, yes, I, too, have blossomed and I just really couldn't be happier. I already feel so attached to and in love with this little girl...perhaps it's because spring is in the air.
