Even though the weather has yet to fully decide upon spring, the colors have been brief but lovely. Thank you for coming by and commenting.
Spring is a wonderful time of year … if it is allowed to happen. We so often go from winter to summer, then skipping fall which is my favorite time of year. This was a pleasure.
I know what you mean. It seems spring rushes by, if it even bothers to visit. This year she’s flitting in and out here. Before you know it it will be warm enough to call it summer. Glad you stopped by for a visit.
OO these images trigger sense of smell memories and WOW!!!! I close my eyes and wallow in the scents of apple blossoms and it’s pure BLISS!
I’m guessing they’ll start blooming in earnest this week. 😀 Happy to bring you memories.
So pretty, I love magnolia so much! Cherry blossoms, too. 🙂
I love them too. I wish I had Japanese cherry blossoms. 😦 Maybe someday. Thank you for stopping in and sharing these with me.
gorgeous springs images, thank you 😉
You’re welcome. I’m looking forward to more spring and less frost these days. 😉
oh yes 😉 me too
Marvelous signs of Spring. Good job.
Thank you for your visit and listing in your related articles section. Happy spring to you.
And to you, Happy Spring. Flowers are bursting forth, birds are doing their mating dances, and fish are spawning. Yep! It’s Sp;ring.

Lovely pictures of spring…and no more snowfall here ~
Can’t say the same here. 😉 I’ll post pictures shortly. Thanks for stopping in.
Good to see you at the Pub, Yousei — great images and you buttoned them nicely with your words. The jasmine is in full roar of bloom just outside our house. When I go out to feed our outdoor cats, I’m hit by a wall of white perfume. ‘Tis the season … Brendan
I love jasmine. It never lasts long enough for me. We must have had some somewhere when I was young, but I really don’t remember noticing it until I was married and in our first house. We had a bush on one side, and I tried my hand at pruning on it. It turned out alright (my neighbor wanted me to prune hers), and the next year it burst with blossoms. We have some on this property too, but I usually forget to go enjoy them until its nearly too late. I’m trying to keep an eye them so I don’t miss them this year. Thanks for the reminder and the kind visit.
Am not a poet so to speak, but the picture captivated me into writing something. Here’s one:
white blossom shroud
Pretty nice for a “not a poet so to speak.” I like the unusual pairing of shroud and smiles. Thanks for coming back and sharing it. 😀
thanks for the encouragement! that’s what i appreciate about you…. you always take out the time to encourage “shaky” first timers 🙂
From one who is still shaky, I appreciate that. 😉 Keep it up.

Thank you. Glad you liked them. Off to read your poem.
Spring is indeed in the air…lovely photos to represent that fact…thanks for these images.
Happy to share them. 🙂
such gorgeous pictures… fallen crazily in love with the white blossom one. Live in a desert myself, hardly any signs of spring. Will use yours for inspiration!! love the imagery of white petals and snowfall!
It really is a beautiful tree. Usually the crab apple, which is right next to it, blooms at almost the same time. This year the white is nearly finished and the apple is just starting. I’ll have pictures of it up as soon as the blooming is full. I look forward to seeing where inspiration takes you.
Ooh, glourious pictures. Digging the text as well.
Oh, also, I did some more origami poetry leavings. And some one found one and got back to me. Twas a lovely moment.
Really? That is so cool. Did you post? I still haven’t finished my “leave a poem” project. Maybe I can get going on it tonight. I have a feeling if I don’t start it soon it will just slip away. Feeling inspired….
Some gorgeous photos, and a nice visual in the words as well–we had our bradford pear snowfall almost a month ago now here in oklahoma–everything is weeks early–but not much of the frozenwhite stuff this year.Thanks for all your visits to my place, and kind comments, YH.
Thank you for your visits. 🙂 I really enjoy your poetry. Even if I don’t leave a comment, you can still be confidently suspicious that I hopped by and read. I really enjoyed the personal myth poem. Makes me curious about the longer one. Oran is training me to read and enjoy longer works. 😉
Lovely signs of spring!
Thank you. I really like your Osaka castle picture and poem. I’d love to go there some day.
wonderful photo now I’am inspirited to take some iphotographs today
I took these because I was inspired by another blogger’s spring photos. Happy to pass in the inspiration. Let me know if you post any.
I have at my site I’am using for the poetry month
http://leah-jamielynn.typepad.com you can go and read the current poem if you like. Blessings
Thank you. I’m off to read.
and thank you for stopping by. Yes i’am using for the National Poetry Month. So i’ll keep you posted on the photos.
Sounds great. 🙂
did it really snow…i mean i know the weather is freaky and all…or was it just the blossoms…i love to stand in a blossom shower….nice pics too…
Actually it really did snow, but not enough to leave anything on the ground. Still rather disorienting for a Texan. I thought about the rain of petals (to come later, because they’re just budding now). I knew that image would work. Glad to share it all with you.
wow that is rather crazy…supposed to be cooler here the next couple days…but only highs in the 50s
Yep. I’ve been here over twenty years now, and I’m still befuddle by it. (Great word, right?) 😉
🙂 Glad I could share them with you.
I can’t wait for the crab apple to reach its peak. That’s my favorite.
refreshment to the soul…these are gorgeous pictures! What a lovely walk you must have had 🙂
Thank you. All but the magnolia are on our property. I sure wish we had such a beautiful tree. It is fun watching things sprout up and blossom. Thanks for sharing them with me.
