This year’s Spring: It’s a Quiet Thing —

Spring came slowly this year, and quietly. No blare of trumpets or daffodils, no noisy explosions of azaleas (not yet, at least) — just quietly. Water riffling the pond at Look Park:

Spring Came Quietly This Year

Pale blossoms timidly unfolding:

Winter’s warriors fallen:

Spring’s first wildflowers:

It seemed to take forever this year! Winter stubbornly clung to its prerogatives as long as it could, but at last, at last, with quiet gratitude, we welcome SPRING!

    Love these photos. Spring is such a glorious time!

  2. Amen to all of these good things!

  3. Went for a walk this evening with my hub. Started out warm. Ended a lot cooler. But still better than COLD! Pretty pix. 😉

  4. The slowness offers time to appreciate these changes as the snow melts and the warm air enters. I hope your spring is evolving with peace and contentment for all you see.

      You are so wise, Tara.
      The slowness is important. Now that sunshine and warmth are speeding things up, I feel an urgent desire to slow it down just a little bit longer —

    I think that instead of Spring coming as a Quiet Thing, that it really comes blasting in, gorgeous, full, inspiring – and if one doesn’t appreciate it every single day and moment, that beautiful yellow-green, the tulips and other blast-forth bulbs are much too soon over. So, I look with care and love at each day’s moment and rejoice.

      Nance — we’re at one with the appreciating!
      But on your side of the street, Spring seems to have been more exuberant! On our side, it came in quietly. I rather like that. Gives me more time to notice.

    This was a very docile spring unfolding – the season was almost skittish to show itself. I”m glad we have (finally) put winter to bed – at least for a while…
