Besides flowers bursting every which way you look, you can also see signs of spring if you move closer. Buds are on so many plants and trees, and if you look at them closely, a lot of them are pretty cool. What signs of spring are you seeing in your neck of the woods?
This week, Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack challenges us to share photos of light. So many possibilities. We could go literal, with photos of actual lights, or use sunlight or moonlight – shadows, even! Maybe something that makes you feel uplifted, or light.
My contributions vary among a couple of those categories. I hope you enjoy them, and head over to Ailsa’s page to find out how to play along!
