Flowers Above

27 Mar

Recently, when walking to and from work or through my garden or around my neighborhood, I have tended to keep my eyes at ground level, on the alert for early blooms and signs of spring. But this evening, in the magical hour before sunset, I looked up… and was immediately rewarded by the sight of emerging flowers on local trees, a glorious sight indeed–and a reminder that good things also come from above.

      Thank you; a new lens has allowed me to get much closer–but I’m still learning how to use it! In this case, it was mostly sheer luck.

      I have mostly the trees themselves to thank–I love it when they start to flower.
