in awe

I live a few minutes from this stunning tree and each Spring I go and stand there with my eyes wide open and my jaw dropped. My Grandmother was right, can there be anything greener than grass. I have this on my table to illustrate because I am in awe of Spring. Happy Spring.

These flowering wonders of nature do have me in awe!. Of course I am always tempted to stop & take cuttings. (I don't dare)

I am always in awe of nature, her beauty, her power and her sometimes devastating eruptions....

This tree is wonderful, I can almost feel the breeze moving the
swaying branches!

I just love it when a tree bursts into full colour after a winter of nothing... I have a quince in my garden (not quite a tree, I know) and this year it has produced the most incredible flowers. I love all the apple trees for their colourful, pretty blossoms. Shame they are all so short lived !

I love Spring too! The renewal is so inspiring - and beautiful to see. If only we could skip the pollen!

The tree is in splendid array; standing there, bending its lovely branches on the path for all to see.

So beautiful! How fortunate that you have this glorious scene near by. I think I'd just camp right there until the blooms have all faded...which is always much to soon!
Please share your rendition with us...love to see how you would capture the essence of this spot and bring your own special flourish to it.

Have a wonderful weekend,
J~
