You Capture.

Photobucket

Spring has sprung in my neck o'the woods...can I get a Hallelujah y'all?!! *sigh* I adore spring...the smell, the blooms, the activities, the outdoors...love it love it. Our challenge this week was to Capture Spring. These are my 2 fav captures, don't make me pick. I mean it. ;)

This first one was a capture from a lovely walk with my cherubs in the woods one Saturday. It was soo invigorating to get out and about in the fresh air...and those two are a hoot, oh yeah and we took the puppy! Ha! I love the bright Spring green color of the moss on this tree...can't ya just reach out and feel it?!

This second capture is from my Mama's front yard...my fav Lilac bush. I picked Lilacs off of this bush for my school teachers when I was little. I still love to pick them and bring them in the house. Seeing these sprouts makes me giddy with excitement that Spring really is here!!! :D

How sweet that you can still pick flowers off of the same tree you picked from as a child. Your moss photo is exquisite (hmmm...did I spell that right?). Beautiful captures.

Love the blue of the sky in #2 but oh my goodness - your first shot is so cool! It is zoomed so well that at first I thought it was a cliff with trees in bloom!

Gorgeous shots!

Stacie's Madness said...

YES YES YES.
great shots and there isn't much better that a lilac flower in your home...I can almost smell it now...and probably the reason I planted two in my yard. I put them CLOSE to the windows so I can smell them all the time!

Those are incredable! I didn't read the description before I saw the first pic ~ I thought it was some sort of cliff with trees at first! LOL

I love the Lilac buds-- my husband accidentally trimmed my Lilac to death this year so I'm afraid we won't have blooms. Be sure to post yours when it's flowering!
