I have two favorite seasons: Spring and Autumn. Choosing between them, although difficult, Spring would win. Both are photographic wonders, but I don’t have to travel so far to experience Spring’s beauty. Sacramento is a wonderland of blossoms and regeneration of wildlife. This week, Sofia of Photographias encourages us to share our thoughts and images of Spring.
Every Spring Ananda Village, in Nevada City, volunteers plant amazing tulips for visitors. It is getting so popular that we now have to make reservations.
North Table Mountain was formed by volcanic activity and has an array of beautiful wildflowers each Spring.
Speaking of wildflowers, there is nothing more beautiful than a mountain of wild California Poppies.
There are also beautiful rose gardens in the Sacramento area. These were taken at the McKinley Park Rose Garden.
Each Spring the owners of Maple Leaf Gardens used to host an open house for the public.
Wild mushrooms also make an appearance in Spring.
Spring is also the time for birds to nest.
Each Spring, geese families strut around the pond in my neighborhood. You’ve got to watch out for the dads though, they are very protective of their goslings.
Spring is definitely a time for renewal, hope and beauty. We will be ready for it after the Winter most of us have been experiencing.
