Photo Friday #15 – Spring!

I have posted previously about spring in my neck of the woods but as today’s theme is spring I thought I’d add just one more glimpse.

This photograph says everything about spring to me, particularly the delicate colour and the blue sky behind. Spring is my favourite season – it’s a time for renewal and new beginnings, and these spring cherry blossoms are both of those to me.

Cherry Blossoms

Spring Quiet

Gone were but the Winter,
Come were but the Spring,
I would go to a covert
Where the birds sing.

Where in the whitethom
Singeth a thrush,
And a robin sings
In the holly-bush.

Full of fresh scents
Are the budding boughs
Arching high over
A cool green house:

Full of sweet scents,
And whispering air
Which sayeth softly:
“We spread no snare;

“Here dwell in safety,
Here dwell alone,
With a clear stream
And a mossy stone.

“Here the sun shineth
Most shadily;
Here is heard an echo
Of the far sea,
Though far off it be.”

Christina Rossetti (1847)
