The Colors of Spring- #SundayStills #Photography


This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is hosted by Marsha Ingrao on the Always Write blog. The theme is- Emerging. Visit Marsha to see her entries and join in the challenge here.

The photo above was taken in the second week of March and was the first of the cherry blossoms.

This is the tree now! Our RV Park is riding a pink wave, lol.

In Japanese culture Cherry blossoms are a symbolic flower of the spring, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life. 

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.

This is a fruit salad tree. It has four varieties of plums and a nectarine.

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

Harley is happy to be out in the sunshine with the emerging daisies 🙂

How about you? What is your favorite season?

  3. Hi again Jacquie. What lovely blossoms! How does Harley like his leash. My agreeable cat said, “No thanks!” Harley looks very happy in the warm sunshine. Are you camping somewhere?

    1. We’re full-time RVers and love it! She’s been on a harness and leash since she was a kitten and does well with it. There are eagles 🦅 and raccoons 🦝 here so we needed a way to keep her safe.

    1. Thank you, Kymber. She’s almost ten now. She suffered a horrible fall a couple of years ago. It pinched a nerve in her back. She dragged herself into the house- so awful. I carried her to the vet, tears streaming, but they weren’t sure what was wrong without getting expensive MRI’s.
      Miracle of miracles, when we brought her home she started to walk again! At first, her back was hunched like a Halloween cat and she moved kind of sideways, but it slowly got better and now she gets around pretty well 😊

  7. I love the cherry blossoms on the west coast. Thye always made me feel so happy. Here in Spain, we have almond blossoms which are also very pretty. They come out in late February/early March. Enjoy the nice weather. xo

    1. Do they have a scent, Darlene? I wish the cherry blossoms did. Back in Alberta we had a giant Mayday tree in our front yard that gave off the most heavenly scent!

      1. They have a slight scent. I remember my lilac hedge in Alberta. Such a wonderful scent. Have a great week. xo

  8. Beautiful photos. Looks like Harley is enjoying herself.

    Autumn used to be my favorite season, but I like them all except winter. Especially after the one we had this year. 🙂

    Love the emergence of Spring flowers after winter. In Australia things are going well in terms of weather (and covid) in Autumn and I am enjoying seeing the autumn leaves fall! Denyse #sundaystills
