Springing in to a Fresh Start

April showers bring May flowers!

Well, we may have been missing out on an abundance of April showers, but we’re getting a sneak preview of what the May flowers are going to be!  Thankfully, it appears that winter has taken its last bitter breath, and we are finally in the midst of spring.  A new season, a new beginning, and a fresh start for lots of little flowers, plants, and creatures.  Oh yes…creatures.  Luckily, the only “creatures” I encountered this week were the pleasant ones; tons of chirping birds, my normal encounters with my roommates (aka – the ladybug infestation), and tons of little bees buzzing around as I was out and about today.  I’m glad I decided to keep it simple this week.  We had great weather, and it was nice enjoying the outdoors and taking some photos of the flowers and budding blossoms.  Though I didn’t get to explore much of the outdoors, snapping these flower photos inspired me to (hopefully) get out to the cherry blossoms which are in “peak bloom” in D.C.  Seems like even though I’m so close by, I’m always missing them.  I might have to make the effort and get out there this week, particularly since the business task for this week is a “personal shoot”, meaning to basically just shoot whatever you want, and I’ve been wanting to do this for years!  Enjoy the pics, and perhaps this won’t be the last you’re seeing of the spring blossoms:)

Springtime is the land awakening.  The March winds are the morning yawn.
