One afternoon I grabbed my camera and ran outside to capture the beautiful spring day and this is what I found.
I inherited a garden in front of our new home, and everything was coming alive at once...
Dogwood was blooming everywhere I
looked in both pink.....
and white blossoms. Tulips, lilac and azalea were everywhere and the days were filled with the music of songbirds.
A drive to WaterRock Knob, off the Blue Ridge Parkway, showed less color at the higher elevation, but still beautiful to see.
For an Ohio girl, who has spent most of the last 50 years in Florida, it seemed all my memories of spring were spread out before my eyes. Don't get me wrong, I truly love living in Florida, but when spring or fall calls, I head to the mountains.
Stay tuned, to see these images interpreted in oil.
Thanks for stopping by today.
