OUR WORD VIEW – Word of the Week = SPRING

A collaborative BLOG between two friends (me and my friend Barbara Pagnotti) who’s paths were separated for 20 years and have found one another once again online. Both share a love of the ocean, nature and of course photography! A fondness for inspirational sayings has sparked this project. Each Sunday we will post the “WORD OF THE WEEK” and our individual interpretation of the word via two separate photos on our blog “OUR WORD VIEW”! Join our FLICKR group and add your photo interpretation of the word and join in the discussion! Our Word View – FLICKR Group
4/15/12 Word of the Week = SPRING
For me when I think of spring I think of a “Bradford Pear Tree”. I’m sure you’re thinking that is so random. Most people think of tulips or daffodils but in my front yard we have one of the largest, most perfectly shaped pear trees I have ever seen. I think because it is constantly hit by our irrigation it just grows by leaps and bounds. It just loves the spot it is in. My son a landscaper and my husband prune it judiciously each spring to be sure plenty of light is let in. Also they cut out branches that rub against each other and cause wounds. They also lighten the canopy so it won’t split during the winter which is so common for Pear trees.

Below is a picture of the full Pear tree in our yard. Beautiful isn’t it?
This for me is what I think of when I think of Spring!
