Just over a month ago, I posted some pictures of spring colours. Spring typically comes early and tarries a while here in the Fraser Valley. As I continue to experiment with close-up (macro) photography, I haven’t had to wander far to see a variety of colours over the past month.
So, here is edition number two of spring colours. Click on an image to enlarge. Pay attention to the details. God is an amazing creator.
We have three different colours of rhododendrons in our yard. You can notice them all around Abbotsford. Which one is your favourite?
We have a few purple irises in our yard; our neighbours have some blue ones. Note the detail in the bud about to open.
The difference between “starting to bloom” and “full bloom” is quite something. Again, these flowers are courtesy of our neighbour’s front yard.
When it comes to blackberries, if the fruit was ripe and ready to eat, I’m guessing I wouldn’t be taking too many pictures. But I was caught by the colour in this stage of growth. And, the thorns. Oh, the thorns.
And spring continues…
As annoying as this picture is for those attempting to keep their lawns free of weeds, who will admit to picking a dandelion at this stage and blowing the seeds? Go on, do it! And in a few weeks, another yellow flower will appear, which will go to seed, which…you get the point, right? If only dandelion seeds produced bleeding hearts!
Thanks for enjoying these pictures with me. For any reading this who are experienced in photography, I’d love to hear from you in terms of sharing ideas and tips. Contact me if you’d like to use any of my pictures.
Let’s see if spring continues long enough for a third edition. Stay tuned.
