    Beautiful! Isn’t springtime just luscious?

    • I don’t want it to stop!

        Neither do I. Summer is my very least favorite season.

        • Considering where you live, I understand why you don’t like summer as much as the other months. Here, in the Puget Sound area, I live for the summer! Love the sunshine and warmth…but not too warm!

          We don’t get all that much heat here, except perhaps a couple of weeks in August, but it’s the swarm of tourists everywhere that makes the season between Memorial and Labor Days such a pain. The beach closest to me seems to be getting more and more crowded each summer. Then again, summers on the beach are the coolest time with the foggy marine layer pouring in most days.

  2. You capture the spring growth beautifully!

  3. Gorgeous photos, love them all…Spring is such a wonderful time of year.

Thank you!
