In Search of Spring

Last week after my first round of tests W came home with a huge bouquet of flowers to try and cheer me up........ This weekend I decided to haul out the camera gear and take some photos......... 

I won't bore you with all the shots I took - or the clever photo editing I tried - but this one pic is my favourite...............





Sunday afternoon W and I decided to head off to the city's green houses.  They have been holding an open house on Sunday afternoons since the beginning of February.

What struck me the most as we entered the first green house was the wonderful perfume of all the flowers........ it was almost over powering............ This open house event is almost over so a goodly number of the tulips and other spring flowers were just about done.......... nevertheless I managed to capture some of the spring time beauty...........























 














And I had to add this one picture it doesn't "scream" spring - but I love the way the picture/plant kinda pops out at you................





It didn't take us long to do the tour - probably no more than 30 minutes - but it was good to smell the dark earthy smells and see the delicate petals and vibrant colours.  For those 30 minutes it felt like we had found spring!

As always, I enjoy the photos you select to share. Although as of this post we have not gotten the snow that was promised for today I desperately need Spring and glorious Summer. Your description of the wonderful scent of the various flowers has me committed to going to the Botanical Gardens in the Spring; I think I'll take my camera! Have a great day.
