Spring Begins

Spring begins early, with nodding daffodils …


… then cherry blossoms …


… and other blossoms I do not know the name of—though they are no less beautiful for that—all a-buzz with bees …


… and delicate white blooms.


There are wattle flowers, like tiny yellow pompoms …


… and more pompoms …


… and violets in our garden.


I am trying to take it all in, for I know that soon enough the many petals will fall, like windblown snow, or confetti thrown, and spring will be over for another year.

  2. Your Spring...

    Is our Autumn.

    Lovely to remember that it's-topsy-turvy, on the other side of the glove. :-) And to remember that we can experience, the opposite season, simply by dipping into blogs from there.

    Enjoy!!!!

    1. Yes! I like to think that the seasons all contain a little bit of their opposite within them. I have some of your autumn, and you have some of my spring.

    2. I think this is the Truth of our world, Therese - it's never either/or, but always both/and... Your Spring, our Autumn, your days brighten, ours darken... I love the essential Paradox in this :D xx
