it's just around the corner - really
solo post - L, nikon (March 3, 2009 and March 18, 2009)
I started out tonight with two photos - one on top of a budding tree and one on the bottom of the same tree with snow covering those buds just 2 weeks later. They were photos from one year ago - the first one this same date, February 19 last year , and the snow one 2 weeks later on March 3. That seemed sort of discouraging. So I changed my mind about that approach. I kept looking just a few weeks later to see what I could find and found a different set of photos to use. I found this to be true: just two weeks after the snow photos there were photos on March 18th of Taylor at school having a picnic on green, green grass in a sleeveless dress! and there were photos of daffodils at the market and forsythia in full bloom and redbud trees bursting with purple. So when the temperatures reach 63º Sunday I should try not to get over anxious for spring - packing away the winters clothes, and not get discouraged when the temps dip once more into the 20s, but I should know that in about a month, in all probability, spring will be here in full color. That pop of red that the cardinal brings against the gray background of winter will be replaced with pops of yellows and purples against bright greens of spring and I will be able to shed the sweaters and feel the sun on my bare skin soon enough. Spring really is just around the corner.
I wonder what you find in your photo library in March of last year?
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
