SOL 20/31: A Poetic and Photographic Tribute to Spring

Winter brown transforms to

spectacular, showy blossoms.

Bask in the fleeting beauty for

all too soon the transitory colors

will leave a blossomfall behind.

Green, glorious leaves

will sprout from brown branches 

announcing spring's eminence.

This pic was taken March 1, 2022.

The remaining pics were all taken in April 2021.

This is my eleventh year of participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge. This year I'll be mining my memories for stories to share.     


  1. so beautiful. I can't wait. Just a hint of forsythia soon to bloom here.

  2. Ahhh, spring! So beautiful! We aren't quite this far along yet, but the grass is getting green and things are starting to come up. Tomorrow's forecast is 2-8 inches of snow.

  3. I love the word "blossonfall." Your view of spring is so much better than mine. It's coming though!

    1. And we have "leaffalls" in autumn, coined by my daughter as we watch leaves spinning down in our ravine.

  4. Just gorgeous, Ramona - the Earth full of glory!

  5. A great tribute to spring, goodbye winter. Lovely photos!
