Spring Blooms

My children and I pass these blooms at least three times a week – and every time we stop to admire them, and to smell the blossoms. Yesterday I decided to take my camera and take some pictures.

The beautiful tulips encourage one to sit on the bench and admire them while looking at passers-by. Often when we pass, we see someone sitting on the bench who has given in to the temptation.

And who would not be tempted by such a beautiful garden? The trees are green and alive with the colour of blossoms.

The colour, the scent, and the warm spring breeze encourages one to sit on a bench and soak up the beauty of the moment.

The profusion of blossoms is what I enjoy most about this springtime garden – a garden which my children love running through every time we pass.

When all the blossoms have fallen off the trees, we will know the heat of summer has arrived. In the meantime, we enjoy the beauty of Spring.

Do you pass by many blooming trees during your day?

  1. This is one of the best parts of running in the spring where I live. First, watching the unfolding of the sleeping plants (both big and small), next witnessing their transformation towards full bloom and finally, delighting in their perfume-like scents!

    1. I can only imagine that the beauty you see encourages you to finish your run by energizing you. I know that when I walk by spring plants with my children, we always stop to look at the flowers and smell the blossoms 🙂

    1. I agree they cannot. The photos are lovely to look at, though, when the ground is covered in snow and you wish to look at a reminder of the beauty of spring 🙂

  2. I can picture you with your kids with that look of utter contentment in your faces. Good of you to stop by and just savor the moment. And the best thing is that you can be happy and contented without dipping in the pocket. 😉
