The Year’s At The Spring – Robert Browning


The year’s at the spring
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hillside’s dew-pearled;

The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in His heaven –
All’s right with the world!

  1. Does this post mean that Spring has arrived for you…!?! 😉


    • Hi, Carolyn! Here in central Florida, we’re working hard on kicking spring out of town and leaping straight into summer. It was 82 degrees here yesterday, 84 predicted today, and 90…yes, NINETY…predicted for Friday! That is just way too hot for April! But, that’s Florida. I think actual spring was one day last week!



      • Lucky you, or not lucky you…!
        So many U.S. bloggers have been talking about the lack of Spring..!
        It’s either a feast or a famine… Though I think you’d prefer the warmer clime for your garden to feast upon…! 😉


        • Well, I don’t like dealing with blizzards for sure, but I handle cold much better than hot. In a few more weeks, I will be stuck inside in the air conditioning until next fall. I can go out first thing in the morning and water the garden, but I can’t stay outside in it. My absolute limit is 90, and I can only stay out in that if I’m in the shade. Last summer, we had weeks of temps over 100, and that just makes me physically sick. Luckily, we can garden all winter here. In fact, the gardens tend to languish when it gets too hot.

          I’m a cool weather person, really. If I had my way, it would never get out of the 60’s, and would go down in the 30’s at night. But my husband doesn’t like the cold, so here we are.

          Funny, I was raised in Florida, so you’d think I would be used to it, but I get worse about the heat every year. I would live in the mountains, if it were up to me, but it’s not meant to be. Now I do have some limits…Fargo, North Dakota, say, would be beyond them!



          • Well, you’re a girl after my own heart…!
            We experience summer temps in the 100’s too.. I prefer Autumn, which is now for us in Oz. The weather has been glorious the past week; it’s actually Autumn with temps averaging 60 to 75 – glorious.! Autumn was a few weeks late, but now it’s here and I’m loving it – I think the garden is too…!

            I’m off to bed now; its almost midnight… Catch up later..! 🙂


  2. Oh, yes! Autumn is my very favorite time of year, and when I can, I go to the mountains to revel in the crisp cool weather, the glorious explosion of color from the leaves, and the stacks and stacks of bright orange pumpins everywhere. It is my idea of heaven!! Even in Florida, it’s my favorite season. Enjoy yours while you can. And sleep well!


  3. ooooh me too. I love autumn, no matter where it is. Spring is next up. Right now it is gorgeous here in Central Cal. About 70-80 degrees most of the time with some dips into the 60s. Flowers are at their best.
