"This is Aslan's doing."

"This is no thaw," said the dwarf, suddenly stopping. "This is Spring. What are we to do? Your winter has been destroyed, I tell you!
This is Aslan's doing."
(From C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe)

""For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone, the flowers have already appeared in the land; the time has arrived for pruning the vines, and the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land. The fig tree has ripened its figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along!"
Song of Solomon 2:11-13

Very beautiful! I gives me hope that soon we will see a little life peeping out of the ground. I am ready for spring!

Miss Sandy said...

Stunning photos and I love the quote and scripture you chose to accompany them. Thank you for stopping in and for your well wishes. It looks like I will linger a bit longer with a nasty case of pneumonia. Thank you for the bright spot of your beautiful post. May the remainder of your sweet be filled with fresh reminders of spring!

Lovely passage of Scripture, but I confess I don't really appreciate figs, ever since I learned about fig wasps. Do ask me for further details if you want to know why.

"The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
