Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: SpRiNg

Spring is finally making an entrance here in CO. It is so wonderful that the birds are singing, trees are budding and flowers are erecting blooms. My neighbor is an avid gardner and has the most beautiful sanctuary in her backyard. So, I took a leisurely stroll through the garden gate and aimed my lens at all things “spring.” I simply adore this neighbor and her entire family and admire her love and knowledge of nature.

So, today is the first day of SpRiNg!!  That, along with cleaning out my flower beds yesterday, has my nerve endings pinging for warmer days.  I thought today I would share some images with you that speak “spring.”  Spring makes me anxious for blooming flowers, scurrying animals, hiking and camping,  growing vegetables and herbs, fly fishing, watching nature, grilling out, living outdoors, etc.  I hope you enjoy!

Have you started cleaning out your flower beds and making plans to bring them alive again?  Do you plant a garden or grow herbs?  Please share.  All of these things just make me smile because sometimes, it is the little things.
