Spring Fling

For the past several years, starting on the first day of Spring I’ve posted a quotation about the season as my Facebook status.  I love Spring so much that I needed to celebrate!  My friends seemed to approve, which encouraged me because who doesn’t like “likes” on Facebook?
This year I decided to go one better.  Having recently learned how to make quote pictures (with various easy-peasy websites), I’ve been illustrating the quotation of the day.  I post just the words on my personal page, and the pictures on my blog page.
Because I want to be able to pin them as well, I’m collecting them all here.  I took all the pictures myself, but I can’t take credit for the words!  I hope you enjoy them.
