Gothic Arch Challenge - Spring

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

  7. Lovely spring Arch! I'd like to see it it on a painted block or decorated box with the top of the box having a Spring fastened to it and then the Spring Arch attached to that...then it could be bouncy on the spring. (Big Grin) Well, it look cute in my head anyway.
    Hope all is well with you!& I hope to catch you on line sooner than later.
