Focus on Life 7/52 - First Blooms of Spring
After a week of cloudy weather, the sun burst through the overcast and it truly felt like spring. Especially when I spied these flowers hiding under a winter bare tree on my walk home. I've always loved snowdrops, and this one was so open it reminded me of a starburst.
And walking up my front steps, I found these:
I can imagine them opening to the sun's warmth, then slowly furling again as the day crept into shadows and on toward evening, which is how I found them. I can't wait to see them fully open tomorrow!
Thank you Sally, for your photo essay prompt for this week: Beauty of Flowers. It reminded me to look around me as I walked through the neighborhood this week, and to track all of the wonderful signs of spring.
And thank you for stopping by for a visit. To see more responses to this week's prompt, don’t forget to visit Sally's blog for the list of all the wonderful people participating in this week's “Focus On Life” 52 Photos.
