Spring is officially here after the spring equinox of March 21st. And, spring means one thing: flowers, flowers, and flowers. The previous years, many researchers have shown the power of flowers. Both their sight and smell can change our brain chemistry and make us feel more positive. The fresh-cut flowers around the house make us feel less anxiety, and people had more innovative ideas and solutions to problems when flowers were nearby.
For me, spring means more sun, better mood, and endless shooting of blooms and flowers. No matter how many floral close-ups I have in my portfolio, I always find something new, beautiful and intriguing, to photograph that differs from the others.
Today, I gathered my favorite spring quotes for reflection and more inspiration.
I. “You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
― Pablo Neruda
II. “Spring is the time of plans and projects.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
III. “When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest.“
― Ernest Hemingway
IV. “Persephone had it right.
If you must go, might as well
take all of spring with you—”
― Cathy Linh Che,
V. “In a world where thrushes sing and willow trees are golden in the spring, boredom should have been included among the seven deadly sins.”
― Elizabeth Goudge,
VI. “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.“
VII. “People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway,
Wish you all a beautiful day … xoxo !!!
