Spring Has (Almost) Sprung
Spring: trees flying up to their birds. ~Paul Celan
Spring continues to slowly show up here in Virginia...I thought for sure over the weekend that things would be in full bloom, so I was surprised that I still had to hunt a little bit to find spring color. Its arrival this year has been slow as molasses! It mirrors real life, doesn't it? All things come in good time and when they're ready. However, yesterday it was almost 80 degrees and these temps will continue through Wednesday - I think it's officially here! This makes me so happy. It's amazing to me how the arrival of spring affects my energy and attitude - it's as if a switch, that has been in off mode, suddenly turns to ON. I want to exercise again and eat healthy food...my mood becomes much happier with the constant sunshine, color, and warmth outside. I feel transformed!
I'm joining in with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday - this week's theme is to use any two of her textures on an image. In the final image above, I used Daisy (Multiply/42%) and Cora (Soft Light/51%). I also put the image through Radlab. Thanks so much for stopping by!
