Free Vintage Illustration for Garden and Nature Journals, Scrapbook Page or Card Making: Birds Exchanging News of Spring


Never cut a tree down in the wintertime.
Never make a negative decision in the low time.
Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods.
Wait. Be patient.
The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert H. Schuller
