renewal

it seems that, the seasons change overnight here.
after a few gloriously warm days, i'm beginning to see more blooms and buds in the garden!
just walking through my own backyard, i see the emergence of life
and
renewal
of
hope.

winter jasmine


bright stars


hellebores



daffodils


pieris japonica




scilla



hydrangea


moss and sedum


aaaaaaahhhhhh......
renewal.
breathe it in.

This is so true. How silly we are not to take more time and look the way you do with your camera. Thank you.

Goodness Erin
Your photos are incredible... I won't pick a favourite as they are all delightful and remind me why I don't want summer to end.. Think I will have to hop a plane over your way,.. visit you and Carole and do spring all over again... hahaha... wishful thinking.. Still LOVING that last painting.. you have the ethereal touch!!! Have a great week xxx Julie

Looks like you are ahead of us and you are North of me. I was out and about today, and just did not see that much in bloom, unless it was behind homes in gardens. We usually have more daffodils in bloom by now - guess the bad Winter stunted their growth. :-) Thanks for sharing your pretty flowers.

All of these beauties are in your yard?!

So refreshing to see. I loved this post. I just noticed today that certain trees were starting to carry tiny buds on them... and the smell of some flower that I can't tell you the name of is everywhere. LOVE this time of year.

Your photos are beautiful! I have finally seen some tulip bulbs peeping thru the soil here! Spring is nearly here!

Breathing again ... thank you Erin. How wonderful to come here and see these beautiful imagines and words and to hear the beautiful music. Lovely, and now I am off to dream of flowers and sweet music.

Beautiful! Things are just beginning to bloom here. So pretty and makes me smile after such a cold winter. How is that little kitten of yours? A handful I bet!

Zuzu said...

Gorgeousness. It will be weeks until anything green pops up here, so I'm taking in all the beauty you share here. :)

Such beautiful photography! I really like that scilla - I've never heard of them, but they are lovely! Now you have me dreaming of spring! At least the snow is pretty much all gone now here.

Erin,
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Too cool that we found each other through Tracy Porter. Love all your photography and music. Do you happen to know my friend Cindy Shapton?...she is very involved with the 'Master Gardener' program in Franklin and has a blog...the Cracked Pot Gardener. Nice to meet you! Julie

Bonnie said...

Oh aqua goodness! I need to get some of those jars! :)

Had to just come back by and say hi and look at your pretty pictures.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

xoxo,
Bonnie
