In the midst of this endless winter, I really wanted to look at spring photos, so I chose three taken in my yard last spring. All three were taken on April 17, 2013.

126 views as of March 9, 2014.

Dedicated to all the hardy souls dealing with endless snow, ice, and the dreaded wintry mix.

The photos are forsythia flowers, baby viburnum leaves, and a daffodil.
I a different texture from 2 Lil Owls for each photo, plus two textures combined for the background. The font is “Quigley.”

Nikon D700 with Nikon 105mm micro lens for all three photos.

    Gorgeous, Anita! Did you do that for the challenge?

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments, Christina! Yes, I did a slight variation on this one for the challenge and with this endless snow and cold I decided to post it here.

    The sunlight passing through the tree leaf buds brings hope that winter’s snowy end is foreseeable, Anita… This triplet of Springtime tantalizes the senses… Soon…

    A wonderful, artistic collage full of light and hope, perfect to herald spring! I love that you included forsythia, a sign of spring that I remember from childhood.

  • Thank you so much for your lovely comments and the fave, Celeste! And yes, forsythia is a wonderful sign of spring here, and I can’t wait to see it in bloom again!

  • Thank you so much for the feature and the fave, Viv! I’m more than ready too! We had a foot of heavy, wet snow a few days ago and we’re due for 4-6 inches tomorrow. “Dedications to Springtime” is a perfect theme for your features!

    Such a joy to view. A most beautiful tribute to spring, which is hard to believe is right around the corner. Had even a few more inches of snow today …sigh. Looking at this image makes me smile. Can just about feel the warm breeze and smell all the blooms in the air. Wonderful post, thank you!!! : ))) xoxoxoxxoxxoxxox♥

  • Thank you so much for your delightful comments and the fave, Shar. I’m glad I could make you smile in the midst of this endless snow and cold – you’ve really made my day!

    It just started to snow again here and we’re due for another 6 inches. Enough already!
