Spring Inspiration in Photos

Feels like forever since I did a season inspiration post. I'm so happy it's spring. One of my favorite seasons. The weather is supposed to be mild. It's not. We're living in 40 degrees here in New York. Last week, we hit 70. I want that back. It's April. I should be putting away my winter clothes. Still, I braved the cold to take some nature shots. The flowers are beautiful despite the weather.

These shots look like something out of a fairy tale! I only like pink when it's on flowers... or mixed with black.

"Springtime flowers bloom like colorful arrows piercing their way to the sun." Terri Guillemets

“What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.” 
― Kobayashi Issa, Poems

"With the coming of spring, I am calm again." Gustav Mahler
