Day 123: Leaves Unfurl


Day 123: Leaves Unfurl, originally uploaded by susanvg.

Another day and spring continues its advance. Some rain has primed the flora for growth. The pale green flowers, covering the trees with a spray of colour are being replaced by a new growth of young leaves. It's a season of promise, of new beginnings.
As someone in education it is also a time of endings, as school years and projects make their final push to summer vacations. It is the tension between the two that make this time so alive - new growth in nature bursting forth and growth in learning coming to fruition.

  1. Beautiful light in this photo! I'm glad you're taking the time to enjoy this incredible season! There have been some school years where the pace of the push to the end all but obliterated the world around me.
