Spring has sprung and every day something new pops! My camera has been busy. I take photos on our morning walks and often write briefly about what I’ve seen later as a sort of nature diary. Today, three recent entries…
Winter / Spring
Winter’s grudge farewell
via two-faced Rain
(under grey nourishes change)
Forsythia bursts golden
Hyacinths sweeten the air.

March gales do Spring’s inspections.
Not all that blooms is assured a future.
perish in their prime.

This stop was surely a delight. I’m not sure which I enjoyed more, the poetry or the photography. Those pictures are amazing! What are you using to take your photos? I’m guessing it isn’t your phone. Like you, I’m singing since spring said hello….and I’m okay with winter’s “grudge farewell.” It is time.
What a wonderful poetic garden tour, Violet! Thank you. You’ve captured the gifts and the wrath of tumultuous spring weather. (I just love saying “Forsythia,” don’t you?)
Thank you, Robyn, and thanks for hosting. Yes, forsythia is a delicious spring word… and a happy sight!
Violet, the fluctuations of this season are captured by your in glorious photos. I love this photo journal.
Thanks so much, Carol!

I know the bulbs set the early tone, but catkins are still a favorite to see when I really know it’s spring at last. Sorry for the windy wreck of those, but still love the picture. The clematis is so gorgeous too, those stars are in my past, too. I love that “winter’s grudge farewell”, Violet. Thanks for taking us on a walk with you.
Always with your eyes open, your camera and pencil at the ready. Thank you for the spring tour, Violet!
Thanks for taking us along on your nature walks!
What a wonderful nature walk. You must live in a beautiful place.
