Spring from here to there

March 31st, 2004 · 1 Comment

It’s spring in The Netherlands, as Jorrit Wiersma described on A beautiful morning :

The good thing about how daylight saving time is making us all get up an hour early today is all the birds singing that I heard this morning.

And it’s spring in Missouri, as Shelley Powers wrote about Transitions:

Spring didn’t gradually intrude this year; it exploded in a verdant flood, blossom-bedecked and ready to roll. The bird tree on the corner, visible from my window went from naked limbs and buds to full flower to green leaves in just a matter of a few days; the fields have already greened, and it’s only March. That’s what heavy rains and unusually warm days and nights — almost sultry– will bring.

We’ve been having beautiful mornings here in the Pacific Northwest too. Yesterday in particular was sunny and sultry, even for a morning. Unusual for Seattle in March. By noon it was 75 degrees in the shade at our house. I grabbed the camera and raced outside to photograph flowers, baby in arms.

In her post, Shelley Powers included lush, vibrant photographs of flowers and creatures.

I thought I’d share a few glimpses from my own yard, pictures taken in the recent spring sunshine.

    We have lilac, freesia, hibiscus, marguerites, jasmine, azalea, camelia, iris, coral bells and gardenia all gaily blooming in our yard. What a fragrant mix! The Creator is so imaginative and generous.
