Musings on Spring

This Spring has been so beautiful! This is my 5th Spring in the South, but I have never really had a chance to enjoy it before because I was always studying, practicing, busy with school and all that it entails. I have made sure to enjoy this Spring. I love walking out of my house and seeing brightly coloured flowers in the yard. And as soon as one plant loses its brilliance another blooms! Let me tell you, it makes taking all these pictures for my Etsy shop so much easier and more exciting. I love having the chance to go outside and capture the exquisite colours and subtle nuances that only come once, only for a single day. Do you ever think about that? I can take a picture today and then go back tomorrow and take a similar picture, but never the exact same one. Each day is different.

Anyway, today I bring nature to you.

These photos are unedited. This is really what I saw today. Isn’t it beautiful? Am I not blessed to experience such beauty day after day? It reminds me of the first few lines of one of my favourite poems: Thanatopsis by William Cullen Bryant

To him who in the love of Nature holds
Communion with her visible forms, she speaks
A various language; for his gayer hours
She has a voice of gladness, and a smile
And eloquence of beauty, and she glides
Into his darker musings, with a mild
And healing sympathy, that steals away
Their sharpness, ere he is aware….
