Life Springs Forth
Ahh. . . this time of year. The flowering trees, tulips, lilacs. The air filled with the sweet floral scents and beauty wherever you look. One day the earth is sepia toned; tired with the dead of winter. Then, over the course of a few days, the trees start to get fuzzy cattails, and then leaves slowly uncurl. The plant shoots poke their heads out of the ground and then suddenly before you quite realize it, you look outside and the world is green and vibrant and fresh and alive! I suppose that spring flowers are so beautiful, simply because they are so welcomed after winter. Those elegant flowering plum trees, the sweet scented lilac bushes, the graceful tulips, the exotically shaped irises, the cheerful johnny-jump-ups and of course everywhere the mild hum of the busy bees as they go about their work once more. Today, I am so happy that Spring is here once more!

Glad you liked the pictures, Spring is my favourite too, except for Summer and Fall and Winter. . . 😉

Such peaceful, gorgeous images. The one of the bees and the lilacs is especially enchanting. Were I a painter (alas, I’m not in the slightest), I’d try to replicate that on canvas (and can’t help but think what an awesome fabric pattern it could make, too). Thank you for sharing these beautiful elements of spring in your corner of the world with us.

Thanks- I’m glad the photos brightened your day! I had never thought of that image as a fabric print, but now with that suggestion I can’t help but think that were I to see some fabric printed with bees and flowers, I would snap it right up!
