If spring has arrived in your part of the world I’m sure your delighted with the beauty of daffodils, crocus, tulips, azaleas, and budding trees. If you've not been taking many pictures during the dark and dreary days of winter, now is the time to dust of your camera and head outside. With so many spring blooms the possibilities are endless. You might be interested in landscapes or filling the frame with flowers or capturing intricate details. I find myself drawn to a different view; a more earthy view. I celebrate spring by capturing things that are not attention seekers.
I'm delighted when I find spring's first little critters. This little lady was trying very heard to hide between the prickles of the gumball, but she just couldn't do it. She was much too colorful. I'm surprised she wasn't sneezing with all the pollen on her back!
In the spring, I find my eyes are constantly on the ground. Searching for tiny bits of color among the greens of spring.
One last photo, I had to share is of my wisteria bush. It must have loved the warmer winter we had, because it's branches are so full they're laying on the ground!
Whatever you chose to photograph as a way to celebrate spring, I hope you'll share with us in the Focusing On Life Flickr gallery. Oh, don't forget, we're adding a little word art this month.
"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."
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley,
“The Sensitive Plant”
