Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

with 5 comments

“For nature-lovers, there are few things more wonderful than the awakening of life after a cold, gray winter. Spring is a glorious green renewal.”

Well, here in Vancouver it has been raining a lot, and the blossoms we saw yesterday were distinctly bedraggled. So this collection of images comes from March of 2015 when I took a walk around our neighbourhood and managed to collect a whole album of pictures which I entitled “Blooming Spring in Vancouver“. The awakening of the plant life is happening, of course, but under cloudy skies this year.

  2. Thank you for sharing such beautiful harbingers of Spring. I miss such blossoms as we sail the tropics so it was a treat to enjoy them virtually here. Mother Nature certainly knows how to put on a good show. Hope your rain lets up and you are able to get outside soon.
