It seems that spring is finally here. It's been a loooong time comin'... Although we've had a few lovely days here and there, overall it seems to be a cool "slow" spring. We've had a lot of very breezy days... blustery as Winnie the Pooh would say! But it seems spring IS here to stay. Finally. Trees are leafing out, spring bulbs are blooming, perennials are growing quickly and the lawn is ready to be mowed... despite the cooler temps both day and night.
I love the return of green grass, and longer evenings. The hostas are growing so fast you can practically hear them stretching up... That bed of hostas across the front of the house also contains several bleeding hearts and in the evenings, they are backlit with the setting sun. I love sitting on the "front porch" behind this bed, with my long lens for some "ethereal" photos.
I love their graceful arching branches, the little hearts hanging like treasured charms on a bracelet...
I haven't been doing a lot of photography lately. Now that warmer weather is on its way, I can't wait to be back at it...
Tomorrow is my Ladies Choir Spring Concert. If you are local, why not join us for some sweet music! There will be tickets at the door. Start time is 3pm at St. Dunstans church, corner of Regent and Brunswick. Doors open at 2:15. We'd love to see you there.
"Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
