Life

March is here, and my camera and I see the world returning to life in small and miraculous ways. 

In little leaves whose pale flush of chlorophyll hasn’t fully waxed to green…

…buds so fresh out of the branch that they’re still sticky…

 …delicate lily flowers like drooping bells, blooming from sleeping underground bulbs…

…tiny rose leaves still backed with soft, silvery hairs… 

…plum trees blushing into plumes of cotton candy, with thousands of fingernail-sized pink blossoms opening at the same time…
See! The winter is past; 
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth; 
the season of singing has come.

  1. Comment attempt take#2 (my iphone ate the first one!): Spring affects me this way too — I find myself taking photos of blossom all the time! Right now, though, we’re in the middle of a heat wave, so some cooler weather is much desired!

  2. Beautiful photos! Spring is a fickle lady here in the NW. Today was sunny, blue skies, but chilly. The rain will come back off and on for the next two months or so. I’m always anxious for spring to get here because it means summer is on it’s way. 🙂
