Under the influence of Georgia O’Keeffe (4)

Spring! Was that it?

We will remember 5 March.  The sun shone brightly throughout the day and the temperature rocketed to a giddy 15°C.  Had Spring sprung?  Had the new season begun a little prematurely?  Nature seemed to think so.

In the field across the lane the first lambs of the year appeared.

Ewe and three lambs

Some basked lazily in the sunshine.

Another shared a meal with two friends.

In the garden there seemed to be an explosion of colour.

But, as I write, it is now 6 March.  Today is cold and dull with rain threatening.  The crocuses have refused to open.  Normal service has been resumed!

Was that it?  Was that Spring?

Abstract 122 ‘Crocus’

Although the title I have used clearly indicates the subject of this photo, I prefer to regard it as an abstract image.  My interest is primarily in the colours, the lines. the textures and, above all, the feelings evoked in the viewer.

How things change!

Just one week ago the garden was covered with a thick carpet of snow.  Today the snow has gone and has been replaced with an array of early spring flowers.
