It's Spring Fever! - Maree

"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
~Mark Twain

We're still experiencing very cold weather, but one of my Peach trees, just outside the garden wall (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa) is already dressed in all her spring finery, with beautiful pink blossoms and green leaf buds. She's defying Mother Nature, saying "Enough is enough now!"


  1. How cheerful! We'll be losing our flowers soon and yours are just opening up. What a marvelous earth we live on.

  2. And so we do Elva! I just love the way our seasons cross each other, giving a look into another world! Thanks for stopping by, appreciate that!

  3. Like Elva's, our flowers are on their way out and we've been experiencing our first scent of fall in Virginia USA. Your sketch makes me smell spring. Thank you.
