When color returns to life:

Spring in GeorgiaThe dark drab dabs on palette dry,
The artist sets the old aside,
‘Tis Spring, now vivid, vibrant colors glow
From God’s own hand the pigments flow.

           (R Weisser 2012)

Perhaps the drabness of Winter is such a stark contrast that our perception is skewed.

Perhaps we are so anxious to withdraw from the dark, dreary days that our observations are colored with too much enthusiasm.

Or is it just possible that in any context, the beauty of Spring is unsurpassed by any other season of the year?

As the blooms struggle to complete their life cycle before the leaf canopy obscures the sun, the resulting resplendence is a glorious spectacle to behold.

And it is fleeting. So enjoy it while you can!

Ginny...

Our roses and hydrangeas will be blooming soon, and then deeper into Summer the Crape Myrtles dominate the floral landscape. Thanks my friend.

Dorie...

What nice things to say. Thanks so much.

Sue...

Now head over to the Smokies and see those wildflowers! Thanks.

My two favorite seasons of the year are Fall and Spring. They have the most color changes.

Richard - Spring is a hard time for Debbie she misses all the color that Alabama brings. I will make sure to show her your photos.  They will certainly be appreciated more than you know.  We're still brown here... imagine that but we're warm and have spring winds so that makes spring officially here in Albuquerque :)  Have a great and colorful day my friend.

Hi Richard, These photos are just stunning. When I first glanced at them my mind took me to an area in Dallas called Turtle Creek. But I concede that as beautiful as it is by the time I saw the last photo, these views easily win. Just beautiful.

Richard...Great shots. 

I finally picked out a camera.  I wnet with your suggestion of Nikon and am going with the D5100.  It comes with the 18X55 lens and I am upgrading to include the 55-300 lens also.  I have a lot to learn!

You may get a call or two. LOL  Sometime late this coming week.

Simply gorgeous words and photos. Makes me even more anxious for spring, though, and it's still a ways off around here. Thanks for sharing yours.

Very pretty, Richard. The flowers and shrubbery sure add a lot of cheer this time of year. Uh oh, your poetry rubbed off in a rhyme!

Great photos, Richard! Visually stunning and so inviting. Although Summer is the season I love best, Spring is a close second because of nature's colors.
