Top Spring Planting Quotes

Spring Planting Quotes By Mildred D. Taylor

In 1930 the price of cotton dropped. And so, in the spring of 1931, Papa set out looking for work, going as far north as Memphis and as far south as the Delta country. He had gone west too, into Louisiana. It was there he found work laying track for the railroad. He worked the remainder of the year away from us, not returning until the deep winter when the ground was cold and barren. The following spring after the planting was finished, he did the same.

Spring Planting Quotes By Frederick Douglass

Spring Planting Quotes By Serenity Woods

Josh stared at Kate. She was watching the happy couple, smiling. The warm spring breeze caught her hair and ruffled it like a shining curtain in an open window. It also caught her dress, flipping up the front and giving him an eyeful of long, slender thigh. He could remember planting kisses up that thigh, listening to her sighs as he refused to stop there. She looked ravishing, and all of a sudden he felt a surge of naughtiness, like a schoolboy passing an open box of sweets.

Then he patted the red satin carefully flat. Probably for slightly longer than was necessary. — Serenity Woods

Spring Planting Quotes By Adalbert Stifter

On increasingly warm nice days I liked to sit toward noon on the bench encircling the cherry tree and look at the bare trees, the freshly plowed fields, the green strips of winter planting, the meadows that were already sprouting, and through the fragrance which swells out of the ground with the advent of spring contemplate the mountains, gleaming with the colossal quantities of snow still on them. — Adalbert Stifter

Spring Planting Quotes By Ellen DeGeneres

To be honest, I'd be the last person who should be doling out gardeinng advice. I don't have the patience for growing things.

Spring Planting Quotes By Jim Rohn

Spring Planting Quotes By Barbara Kingsolver

When I look out the window, I exhale a prayer of thanks for the color green, for my children's safety, for the simple acts of faith like planting a garden that helped see us through another spring, another summer. And I inhale some kind of promise to protect my kids' hopes and good intentions we began with in this country. Freedom of speech, the protection of diversity - these are the most important ingredients of American civil life and my own survival. If I ever took them for granted, I don't know. — Barbara Kingsolver

Like others, I often missed school to help on the farm, especially in the fall, until after harvest, and in the spring, during planting season. — Ezra Taft Benson
