Bloomin' springtime

















At last!

In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.

— William Shakespeare

M-L, it's my favorite season. The bottom photo is of a redbud tree.

I've decreed that dandelions are the new sunflowers. Or the sunflowers of spring, at the very least.

better than sunflowers, even, because they don't become weary of time :->

The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring, tra-la,
Have nothing to do with the case...

Sorry, a bit of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Kia ora MB,
Such an interesting and lovely contrast for me as we here are moving into winter with its more muted greens and heaviness that seems to settle over the landscape. Of course in the mountains that merely adds to the remote beauty. My favourite is the dandelions, reminds me of the lightness, and possibilities, we feel in spring. Kia ora MB!
Ka kite ano,
Robb

Happy that spring has finally found you! Here, we have green, we are mowing, but the cool is lingering surprisingly long! I fear the pendulum swinging the other way!

These photos have such a strong feel of spring about them. As Robb, says, it's such a contrast to here; although we've just had a magnificent day, as soon as the sun went down the chill rose from the ground and crept out from under the hedges and sheds. Frost's not far off, I think.

rr & Dale, indeed, they bear the clock very well! ;-)

Mireille, I had not made the association before but you are right!

Robb, it makes a poignant contrast, doesn't it.

Pete, I am happy you had that response to them. Stay warm.

All, thanks for visiting and joining in the celebration!
