Spring Dreaming

It is Winter and there is no mistaking that. An cold blast of Arctic air is about to overtake the lower 48 and has already made itself well known in Canada and its Provinces. Many of the folks in the northern States and all of you in Canada are experiencing a brutal Winter with countless inches of snow and yet another snow storm is predicted for this weekend. And yet, I keep thinking about Spring.

Spring with its Crocuses peeking up through the snow. Spring with its Daffodils brightening the landscape with their sunny yellow smiles. Spring with its Tulips in reds and oranges and purples and pinks. Spring with its bright green grasses and newly sprouted leaves. Spring with its warm sunshine and light breezes. Spring with its blue skies and fluffy white clouds. Spring with Easter eggs and Easter bonnets. Spring with Ducklings, Goslings, Bunnies and Chicks. I am dreaming of Spring. I captured this image several Springs back when the Japanese Magnolias were just beginning to bloom at Bernheim in the Arboretum. This pink blossom was one of my favorite images of Spring. I will never forget the year I captured this image. The scent of Magnolia blossoms wafted heavy in the air as I walked among the grove of trees. It was heavenly. I am dreaming of Spring. ENJOY!

  1. That is a beautiful photo Carol! Yes, we are all dreaming of spring. I really need to get out and embrace winter though. Maybe on the weekend. There's a sliding party at the orchard and we're dog sitting. That means I will make myself get outdoors. Snow and cold and all. :)

  2. Superb bloom, and spring must be up there soon, as our mornings are definitely into the autumn tonings, cool, dew on the lawns, and colour in the sunrises. I have yet to drive out that early and capture the sun rising behind far away hills, maybe soon when Hugh is heaps better. Hope your settling in is going well, and snow and ice are leaving you behind.

  3. Spring .. the time of new beginnings.

    Its a drab, grey, wet and cold day here so your beautiful Spring image definitely perked me up Carol.

    Best withes from us both.

  4. Now you have me dreaming, too. I hope you're settled, Carol.
