Spring from my View


I am loving looking at everyone's pictures of spring. You know what is so awesome about blogging...it is getting a glimpse into someone else's world!! And, it is from their point of view.

I have been thinking for the last few days that I would post pictures of the nature that surrounds me on a regular monthly basis. April is an awesome month to begin, it is a month of re-birth, warmth, rain showers, and birds singing.




The good news is that the snow is pretty much all gone. I have seen a bit in a few ditches, but for the most part it is gone. Even the big piles that were in shopping mall parking lots have pretty much melted away. Which, by the way are the most disgusting piles of snow, they are so dirty and littered.

There are splashes of green where the early spring flowers are starting to show themselves, but other than that things are pretty blah. The grass is still dormant, and the ground is starting to thaw out. Trees don't have any blooms yet. (they may still be bare a month from now, if we don't get warm temps) Several years ago I attended a wedding of a childhood friend at the end of May and the trees were still bare, I felt so bad for her.

I am going to try to take some pictures in the same location each month so we can watch how it changes. I may just photograph what catches my eye though. Living here in S. Ontario we truly do enjoy all four seasons, I know some of you have been saying your seasons don't really change. So, enjoy the seasons through my eye.

If you follow me regularly you know I am all about finding the simplicity in the every day and enjoying the little things in life.

Lori said...

having spring after winter makes spring all the more enjoyable.... here well we have 2 seasons summer and almost summer... so we've had spring for a while now (it sort of loses that cool spring feeling)

Janet said...

I am looking forward to seeing how the changes happen!

Tasha said...

Awww spring. I love spring when all the snow melts and you can freely go outside without all the bundleing up!

Cindy said...

I love spring! I can't wait to see all the wonderful color come back. It's amazing to see God's work at hand.

I love watching the transformation into spring. My hard has so many plants that weren't in bloom that we moved in here and I am so excited to see what we have!

Sue said...

Your Spring pictures are wonderful! Having just come home from visiting North Carolina where Spring has sprung, I get to watch ours happen little by little. It always amazes me. Now if only I had a green thumb, I too might be seeing Spring blossom in my garden but... that won't be happening ;-) I'll watch yours instead!

Thanks for the little piece of country from this "city girl" ;-)

Loving your spring pictures!

I love AZ, but I miss the seasonal changes of the East!

Cascia said...

That is a great idea! I love your photos. Spring is my favorite time of year. The seasons don't change that much out here. I miss the changing of the seasons back home in the midwest.

I just love Spring. It's so pretty and has such a feeling of promise and renewal. I am still waiting for it to hit here. It will be such a happy day when I can wear capris and flip flops again!

XOXO

Great photos, I look forward to seeing the changes through the year. As much as I love the weather here in Southern California, sometimes I wish we experienced the full four seasons.

Love the pics and love spring too! Still feels like winter here. We had snow a couple days ago and rumor has it that there was snow about 15 mins south of me today, too. Ugh!
