What is it about spring that so many of us find enthralling? Is it the promise of things yet to come? The warmth of summer and sun filled days. Or is it just that the dreary, cold of winter has finally come to an end? I guess it’s a mix of all that and more. I know I look at the budding trees and flowers with such excitement each spring you would think it was the first time I had ever witnessed it. But truth be told they’re the same year after year. And yet I look at them with such awe and excitement. Each day I walk my flowerbeds to see how much they’ve grown and what new may have popped through. I like to see the flowers that have reseeded themselves and are popping up in new places. Believe it or not I find that exciting. Okay so I guess it doesn’t take much to excite me but any gardener I’m sure can appreciate what I’m saying. And so with that, each one of these photos represents the wonders of spring that I find so enthralling.
Lovely photos, as always. When we lived in New England, spring was my favorite season for so many reasons. After seeing white and grey for so many months, I think we were all ready for a big burst of color from all the wonderful blooms. Living in Florida, it is very different as it stays green throughout the year.
What a beautiful post this is, Liz.
We are getting into spring here in NY also (finally!).
All the color is always such a welcome sight.
Have a great weekend, and I wish you a wonderful Mother’s Day!!
Fantastic photograph series Elizabeth – gorgeous!!
I think we all love spring for so many reason…I to love to see all the flowers popping and trees blooming…but honestly, I am not a gardner and I never take care of anything in the ground…i do like my pots and hangers…and all the pernnenial trees that return year after year…other than that, you can catch me in my chair, poolside, reading a good book…when it eventually gets warm enough…
Spring does excite me though…lovely photo’s Liz.

My back garden is 70’x10′. My front garden is equally as large and I have smaller gardens all around. They are a lot of work initially each year but once they are cleaned up they just give and give. Love them!
Just beautiful Liz! Happy Mother’s Day coming up!
