Blooms popping freshening
up this seasons grey exterior
creative eye catching color
infusing Spring-like energy
into a mostly dreary
** This post is part of the Weekly Photo Challenge, this week’s them “Optimistic”. I was simply struck by the new blooms on a tree in front of our house this weekend. In the midst of storms and grey days these blooms feel it is almost spring! That feels quite optimistic to me. You can find more optimism, HERE.
A wonderful photo, and a great contribution to the photo challenge.
Thank you, Maria. I was so surprised to see this tree in bloom over the weekend!
My pleasure. Yes, that is unusual for January!
I thought so too, Maria. All of these trees are blooming all over town. Our temperatures have been cold and wet, wonder what they know!
Who knows? Enjoy you day 🙂
lovely flower! 🙂
Love the close up with the rain drops. It really carries a feeling of a fresh start. Really good choice for “optimistic”.
Yes, I love raindrops! We have had our share of rain for days and days so this color was such a surprise this weekend. I smile every time I pass by this tree catching the sun with the drops and pretty pink blooms 🙂
Thank you for sending some optimism into my snowbound, frigid world, Carrie. Maybe, maybe, spring will come to Craig Colorado as well.
It feels rather early to see such a burst of Spring. I will do my best to send you visions as often as I see them! That bright optimistic feeling is always worth sharing! You are most welcome.
A beautiful capture, Carrie. 🙂 The sight of flowers amidst winter’s dreariness always gives a sense of optimism.
I totally agree, Louise. I am much more aware of those little gifts of optimism among the winter landscape here, quite a treat actually. Thank you!
