If you don't have Edgeworthia, you really need to get one - or more - as their heavenly fragrance perfumes the garden this time of year.

Today is the day when daffodils bloom,
Which children pick to fill the room,
Today is the day when grasses green,
When leaves burst forth for spring to be seen."
Robert McCracken, Spring

Forsythia blooms come and go in the blink of a yellow Eye,
Then, suddenly, mysteriously, Green erupts; and we sigh.
Michael P. Garofalo, Cuttings

"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
William Wordsworth, Daffodils

I have hundreds of these if you want some

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
Robin Williams

"The first day of spring was once the time for taking the young virgins into the fields, there in dalliance to set an example in fertility for nature to follow.  Now we just set the clocks an hour ahead and change the oil in the crankcase."  
E.B. White, "Hot Weather," One Man's Meat, 1944
