Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring

Spring is but a distant memory, here the weather is cooler and the leaves are falling off the trees so the opportunity for taking timely Spring images for Cee’s Spring Fun Foto Challenge is not great, not possible even. Browsing through my archives of suitable photographs I realise that I have probably used some of the following images in a previous post such as Colourful Spring Flowers, you may be thinking that there are more things that represent spring than flowers, lambs and other baby animals but I don’t have any photos of those. Among the flowers you will find a portrait of our princess Maxi, its not often she sit still enough for me to take a photo however I did manage to get at least one shot on a day when my focus was on the flowers in our garden.

Enough of my waffle, enjoy!

    Delicious, Sam! You know i love a splash of colour 🙂
    The agapanthus after the rain is a knockout!

      Thanks Jo, winter is lacking that splash of colour at the moment so it is nice to look back at Spring 🙂

      Thank you, I’m looking forward to Spring 2013 so I can capture more, hopefully some slightly different blooms if I’m lucky 🙂

    I love the photo of the geraniums. I’ve got some similar ones in a pot next to my front door and it cheers me up whenever I walk past them.

    • twoblackdoggies June 23, 2013 / 5:40 pm

      I love geraniums too! Such colourful, happy flowers and thankfully, very resilient 🙂

    As always, beautiful photos! Love them all but the tulips bring back special memories – they were my wedding flowers!

    • twoblackdoggies June 23, 2013 / 5:41 pm

      Thank you very much, I love photographing tulips, gorgeous flowers and they come in such a variety of colours and shapes. They make beautiful wedding flowers, very elegant 🙂

    Gorgeous pictures! I knew the one from the Spanish Steps was from Italy before I read the caption, and I really like your princess 🙂

      Thanks Meg, it would be so nice to be sitting on those steps today, such a fabulous spot for people watching. My princess says thank you 🙂

      Thank you for the inspiration Cee! Your challenges motivate me to take more photos and to reflect on those taken in the past 🙂

    I love the color of those tulips and the flowers with the raindrops. Really beautiful. Hope you’re having a colorful fall too. 🙂

    • twoblackdoggies June 28, 2013 / 11:27 pm

      Thank you, I wish we were having a colourful fall, I miss seeing those warm, autumn colours but we have to head south or inland for those 🙂

    Love, love, love them all, and the tulips practically jumped out of my computer screen. Absolutely beautiful!
