I know there are some in the good old USA who are experiencing quite a lot of rain these days just before our Memorial Day weekend … North Texas for example. So, I wanted to publish some bright colored photos of some flowers in our yard, and a single green tree out back on a clear blue sky, to help brighten your day. For those who live in calmer areas, like South Florida for instance, I submit some “photo colors” to add to what you already see daily. Point is, be thankful for what you have, regardless of the details.

Ok, true this is a Christmas Cactus bloom at our dining room window, so not necessarily a “spring” photo subject, but hey, the flower has no calendar. Quite beautiful no matter when they decide to pop out.
On the other hand, colorful spring sunsets are typical in SW Virginia at this time of year, given the number of weather cold fronts that move through, often with clearing skies and nice colors, made more special in my opinion when leaves are not on the trees.
The two images below show the hardy nature of Pansies, that were planted last Fall, and made it through cold and snow looking good. The first image surprised me when I walked by, and saw the “smiling face” look up at me. Spring is a great season for photography.
It’s usually interesting and often beautiful to use your camera lens to “look close” and thus see things you may have missed otherwise. These phtos were made at a nature preserve in Greensboro, NC last week. A beautiful warm day, preceded by a cold and wet day, and followed by same. This is typically the sort of early December weather we have in this part of the country. Great photo weather non-the-less. Used my new Fuji X100T camera.
Rainy days are mixed with sunny days at this time of year in SW Virginia and it was on one of the latter days when I made the photos below in a large rose garden at the Danville, Virginia Historical Center. Walking amongst these beauties, coupled with the wonderful smells from the blossoms was a real treat. Enjoy what I saw, sadly sans smells.
