For the Fun Theme Photo Meme this month, the prompt is Springtime.
Unfortunately this May, I haven’t been out and about on as many walks as usual. I love to witness the tight buds on trees and bushes as they unfurl – looking so soft and green, clearly well nourished by sap. As summer progresses and the leaves get wider they lose their ‘tender’ appearance, working hard to photosynthesise they also provide more shade.
I’ve noticed the earliest flowers of the year are predominantly white or yellow ones, but as spring starts to take hold the majority of the ground flowers are in shades of blue – such as bluebells, forget-me-nots and speedwell. I live near several wooded areas and it uplifts my spirits when I see the bluebells painting the woodland floor blue.
