I’ve been taking a trip down memory lane sharing posts from my archives. The stories selected have been from my What’s In Bloom series. I always love seeing and photographing the beauty of nature. Even though this post was originally shared five years ago I believe it’s worth a second look. Please enjoy!

My gardens are forever in transition. Almost every day a new bud explodes with magnificent color. My attempt to keep abreast of this activity has wavered. Although the parade of blossoms has not been evidenced through my recent postings, my camera’s shutter has been busily capturing as much activity as possible. To bring you up to date I have gathered together a library of photos. These images are but a sampling of all that has taken place.
The beauty of flowers never ceases to amaze me! I enjoy taking photos of flowers and adding them to my library. Every now and then I look through my folders just to admire the specimens once again.
I’ve been sharing a series of oldie but goodie blog posts all focused on my love of flowers. These posts are timeless and well-worth the second look. Below is another one taken from the garden category on my blog. Please enjoy!

Spring, one of my favorite seasons, brings with it the anticipation of abundant sunshine and balmy temperatures. Anyone living in Wisconsin knows that Spring is unpredictable; the thermometer is far from steady, temperatures swing wildly from frigid cold to pleasantly warm, and the much craved sunshine often lies hidden behind layers of clouds.
But in amongst the disappointing, unpredictable weather comes the beauty and wonder of the slowly emerging tiny plants. Peeking from the buds on every single branch are hundreds of tiny leaves. These small glimpses of new life remind us of the beauty yet to come.
On one recent balmy day I snatched my camera, slipped on a pair of flip-flops and headed outside to capture a piece of Spring. As I circled my environment I documented as many signs of Spring as I could uncover. Shown here is what I captured from behind my camera’s lens.
