Spring, a Time of Change

April 24, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Spring is a time of change. Nowhere is that more noticeable than in the trees. Leaves start appearing on branches that have been bare all winter long. And in some trees, blossoms appear.

But that all varies depending on the tree in question. Even though spring is about a month old now, our elms are still mostly bare.

Have a look...

I loved the way the late-day sun lit up the branches in that shot. This image also features diagonal line elements, which is something that frequent readers of this blog know that I love. (The elms are fine, by the way. They're just leafing a little late this year.)

Some trees, on the other hand, are pretty far along with their spring fling, having already sprouted and dropped their blossoms, resulting in sort of a "fall" in the spring. Here's what our driveway looked like the other day, under our crabapple trees:

The Fall of SpringThe Fall of SpringAutumn isn't the only season when things fall from the trees. These spring blossums have fallen from the trees, signalling the end, of the beginning, of spring.


The contrast of the bright pink blossoms on the dark pavement caught my eye, so I grabbed a shot.

Anywho, I have no greater, deeper message to wrap up here other than, you know, that "Spring is a time of change" thing.
