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.
With signs of spring finally appearing, I’ve been spending a lot of time outside with my camera. The warm sun and occasional rainy day are doing wonders for the yard.
The scenery is softening with the growth of new leaves.
It is a beautiful thing.
The best gifts are handmade.
Like these Christmas trees, made by my husband and daughter:
A quiet little brook near my family’s camp doesn’t look like much.
But if you spend a minute noticing the details, seeing the artful lines along its bank and the abstracts in the water, there is a plethora of picture possibilities.
Like this painterly reflection.
Bare trees reflected in rippling water like an eerie apparition…
Since it’s dark when I get up, I am usually lucky to see the sun slowly light up my backyard.
I always take a minute to watch through the curtains of my window. Every morning is a little different, sometimes clouds are cast in pink, others the sky turns aquamarine for an instant. This time, the sun catches the trees in a fiery glow.
The light puts on quite a show.
This time, it is golden.
