Winter quotes

Every winter,
When the great sun has turned his face away,
The earth goes down into a vale of grief,
And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables,
Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay -
Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.
~ Charles Kingsley

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.
~ Andrew Wyeth

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
~ Bill Morgan, Jr.

The color of springtime is in the flowers; the color of winter is in the imagination.
~ Terri Guillemets

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
~ William Blake

Purple ♥ Blue

So delighted. And still more to go -- borders, back, quilting, binding. Soon.
