Spring is alive and well here in the Buckeye state. Signs of nature’s renewal remind us that we too can change and once again glow. Just as nature cycles on a yearly basis, we consistently change and evolve. Bad habits can be shed like trees in autumn and be replaced with beautiful buds in early spring. New thoughts can be planted and nurtured until they grow into magnificent and vibrant flowers. This process is not an easy one but can be softened and aided just like April rains when you surround yourself with helpful and nurturing people. On your next walk or dive, be reminded when you see a beautiful new bud or a vibrant wildflower, that you too can burst from your ugly habits and be transformed into a radiant symbol of hope.
Lovely photos! It’s great to see the birds gathering their building material isn’t it. They can look so funny with their beaks full of grasses etc. 🙂
Yes, very true. 🙂 Thanks
just what I needed in this moment
You made my day with these images… seriously. Thank you for that. 🙂
Thanks! glad to hel.
Beautiful shots, Seth, and a wonderful message. Thanks.
Isn’t nature wonderful. Writing this from Ireland where spring had really sprung!
Great to hear. thanks.
beautiful photographs….Yes, nature teaches us a lot……
The b&w with yellow buds/flowers are stunning. I wish it was more springlike here. It has been snowing this week, which is very unusual for April.
It will come. 🙂 Thanks.
Beautiful! The silhouette is wonderful.
Beautiful pics and love the sentiment!
Thank you. Still on vacation?
Great pictures. Living in Florida, I do miss the seasons, especially the newness of Spring. (I just don’t miss the cold!)
These are all so beautiful Seth! I especially love the ‘Streaks of Purple’!
Thanks. 🙂 I walked out my front door yesterday and those had just popped up.
How do you do the bright bits of colour on an almost b&w background? Is it photoshop or a setting on your camera?
Diane, it’s a program called FX photo studio.
Thanks! I will go look for it.
Hi Seth! what a lovely message, about shedding bad habits! I really need to shed a few layers..
Thanks Tasha. Hope all is well with you.
Lovely words of encouragement Seth. Reminds me of Jesus’ talk with Nicodemus who was enquiring about how to enter the Kingdom of God. Jesus replied he had to be born again. He said later to His disciples we had to have the faith of a child. And the Apostle Paul said whoever believes in Christ become a new creation. Old things pass away and everything becomes new. 🙂
Lovely shots!!! Flower shots are awesome!!!
Still waiting for the color explosion over here but it’s coming… slowly but surely…
Lovely set as always… especially like the one titled: “streaks of purple”. (And for what it’s worth… dandelions are useful for many things and as such, not considered by me to be a nuisance at all. Mine is not the popular opinion, however 😉
I think they are pretty too but people really go crazy when the get in their yards.
How lovely those are those flowers!!!
Thank you. :)..
Thanks for an encouraging message and lovely pictures!
Welcome and thanks for your comment.
Streaks of Purple…simply lovely!
Thank you so much. 🙂 ..
Not fair …. all that color and all those flowers already.
It’s so cold still, daffodils are only 3″ high, but blooming. Poor nature this year. Stunning gallery again. Rebirth have to be my pick. Have a greet weekend.
It will be soon. Thanks Viveka.
I truly hope so … just had enough of this cold winds.
Is this what you are getting now? We are so far behind… Nivr photos.
