One Sunny Weekend...

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
~ Henry James

A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
~ St. Francis of Assisi

Buttercups and daisies,
Oh, the pretty flowers;
Coming ere the Springtime,
To tell of sunny hours.
~ Mary Howitt quotes

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.
~ W. Earl Hall quotes

Daisies are like sunshine to the ground.
~ Drew Barrymore

Be like the flower, turn your face to the sun.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Colored scents that fill the air as drowsy insects hum around in the meadow is the place of secret magic where nature alone renews itself.
~ Kate Bergquist

Dirty hands, iced tea, garden fragrances thick in the air and a blanket of color before me, who could ask for more?
~ Bev Adams

Who has not dreamed a world of bliss on a bright, sunny noon like this?
~ William Howitt

I've got nothing to do today but smile.
~ Paul Simon
