Happy Spring

This makes me very happy.

Tiny little red pompoms appearing on the branches, pops of colour that change the view outside my windows on a daily basis.

I don’t even care that the pollen litters the driveway and plugs up my sinuses.

I am just happy to enjoy every minute of this beautiful season.

Lace-like Leaf

This dried and brittle leaf lay on my deck near where I hang out clothes.  I noticed how it had turned sort of lacey in the loss of its green flesh.  It is like a little leaf skeleton, and I find it to be quite beautiful.

Of course I had to photograph it.

Petals turned Pink

Not only the leaves change colours in early fall.

Each time I walk out the front door, I am greeted by pretty pink hydrangea. The cooler weather has turned their pale petals to a soft pink.

My mother cuts these and keeps them throughout the winter. I have planted some of my own so that I might do the same.

Although I do not welcome the drop in temperatures, there is beauty to be found in the changing of seasons.
