Where flowers bloom so does hope.Lady Bird Johnson
Isn’t this a lovely quote by Lady Bird Johnson? I’ll admit I didn’t know who she was until I did a search and it was very interesting rabbit hole to go down!
Over the years I have been keen to share my spring photos and appreciate another opportunity to do so with Terri’s Sunday Stills being all about the Signs of Spring, although it should be noted the full theme for this week is Signs of Autumn (or Spring if you’re in the Southern hemisphere).
Down here in the land of Oz, we started Spring on September 1 and what a wonderful feeling it was after a long wet, cold, miserable winter – and Covid restrictions didn’t help!
Nothing ever seems impossible in spring, you know.L M Montgomery
I wandered around the garden the other day looking for inspiration, and as Lucy Maud Montgomery so wisely said in the above quote, nothing was impossible.
I was overwhelmed with choice, from the little forests of dwarf purple grape hyacinths popping up; the final fling of yellow from daffodils; the pink crepe paper blossoms on the fruit trees; the new growth on the trees waiting to explode; the buzzing of bees and blowflies; the chirping and flurry of colourful birds; the spotting of snakes in the grass, (literally); the swooping of protective magpies; the amazing burst of colour; the feel of warm(ish) sunshine on my skin – in fact all of my senses were engaged and I couldn’t have been happier.
I even took a few photos to share with you – surprise, surprise!
Spring time in the garden
There’s lots of colour and budding new growth just ready to burst forth. It’s such a lovely time of the year. I’ve said in previous posts that because we are at a higher altitude we are a bit behind the rest of the countryside, but I don’t mind that at all. It’s well worth waiting for.
These two photos were taken a few years apart
I love the variety of ways that trees sprout new growth and these trees always appeal.
Some pretty spring colour
I love this carpet of magnolia flowers
As you can see from my small selection, there’s a lot of beauty around at the moment and with the flowers blooming, there’s also a feeling of hope!
I’d love to know what your favourite image is from my selection.
Next week Sunday Stills is all about Sports or Hobbies.
