Both the winters and summers are very trying and severe; spring is so short as to be almost non- existent, but this is compensated for by the long autumn, a genial season which often lasts from the middle of September to the end of November.- "Roumania Past and Present", James Samuelson.
If these flowers came out before his birthday he took no notice of them, treating them as non- existent, nor did he ever notice them afterwards, for he did not easily notice flowers; but his gardener had standing orders to have a bunch of them on the table that one morning in the year to welcome him with their bright shiny faces when he came down to his birthday breakfast, and coming in and seeing them he said, 'My birthday and Spring's'; whereupon his wife- up to now it had been Vera, but from now it would be Lucy- kissed him and wished him many happy returns.- "Vera", Elisabeth von Arnim.
