Witch hazel, Hamamelis, our earliest golden shrub to bloom each spring.

What a golden day it has been here today.

From sunrise to sunset, we’ve enjoyed the kiss of spring.

Hazel catkins lit by sunset's glow.

Hazel catkins lit by sunset’s glow.

Smiles just bubbled up naturally when one walked out of doors into the warmth and bright sunshine.

I went searching for gold today; for that brilliant joyful golden yellow which heralds spring in Virginia.

And I was richly rewarded.

I hope your Saturday has been golden and full of joy; doing things you love.

“It’s spring fever.  That is what the name of it is. 

And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,

but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” 

Mark Twain
