Quote of the week No. 37 : On spring

Yesterday started strappy-top sunny and ended woolly-socks overcast.  
Which reminds me. I've been meaning to post this quote for a long time:

Charles Dickens (1812-1870), English novelist and social reformer. The most popular English writer of the Victorian era and still one of the most quoted after Shakespeare. Yes, that's him there, the one with the wickedly sexy beard and the brutal comb-over.


"Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade." (Great Expectations)


I'd say that about sums it up.

I used to enjoy Dickens novels but not so much now.But his quote is quite apt for you at this time of the year.
