Gayle said...

Those are such beautiful images. It's so cool that you can see some spider webs between some of the branches. Beautiful words.

beautiful words and photos, as always. i see, and feel, new growth all around me, in tiny ways, these days.

Mom, I love the perspective on the second to last picture. It's like looking at an optical illusion, and I can feel my eyes trying to focus it into the correct point of view.

hugs!

Yes, so true, sometimes you have to look a little harder to find it but growth is there each day, within and without us:)

Amazing that something so fragile and soft and pink would come forth from a gnarled grayish brownish stick. It's the sun bringing it out! Hello flower!

I absolutely love the sun flare on the second image!

Gorgeous series of images.

Really wonderful shots, ELK. Love the bokeh and sun flare in that second shot!

margie said...

Liss said...

Growth happens slowly or do we just notice it all of a sudden? Either way it is beautiful when it happens.

Oliag said...

You have blossoms already! Lovely!...Love the new growth!

Christina said...

This blossom is so beautiful. I had to catch my breath!

Something about that second photo made me gasp. I just love it. Love it.

I'm glad someone has spring. We're coooold and expecting snow here. Again. Blech.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Betsy said...
