"Do not look for her for she never arrives until we've given up hope. Once you've sunk into despair over yet another snowfall in April or a hard freeze after planting your beans, she will suddenly appear in a glorious display . . . " Hessie Mayhew, a character in A Light in the Window, a book in The Mitford Series by Jan Karon, writing about "Lady Spring's current whereabouts" in the town newspaper.
"Spring is slowly climbing the mountain to Mitford, wearing a frock of morning mist, and carrying an armful of forsythia. She is shod with ivy and dandelion, and her hair is entwined with sprigs of wolf bane. Unfortunately, she is easily distracted and often interrupts her journey to tarry upon a bed of moss, where she sleeps for days on end." The Muse, a newspaper in At Home in Mitford, a book in the Mitford Series by Jan Karon
"Spring. It medicates the bones and revives the spirit." Father Tim, the main character in At Home in Mitford, a book in the Mitford Series by Jan Karon
