You never know what surprises spring might reveal:
A floating bench on purple-tinted water at sunset;
Three buds looking
Like small owls on a branch;
Underneath a park bench;
And, popping up out of the field,
For more surprises, please go to: Our World.
Spring has burst forth
In an outburst of molten gold;
The ice melts
In shades of blue;
And petals offer up
Bouquets of purple.
Oh, how I love the colours of spring!

Guess what? The ice has melted!
But only a few days ago, it lay thick
Under a blanket of fluffy clouds.
Ruby loves jumping on stuff and posing —
And I love taking snaps of her when she does.

The wild daffodils are like icy lemon bells
In the shadowed places of the woods.
Yes – it’s been a cold April!
They glitter in the sunlight
Showing off their cold diamonds.
Later on in my walk,
I come across so many gold and lemon
Sparkles as the sun bounces of the ice on a fence.
(No editing needed here – these are all nature’s own sparkles.)
And finally, Simmie ‘hides’ on the path,
Hoping to pounce out at Ruby as she passes by.
(He’s a silly boy!)

Spring in Sweden is often a time
Of surprise snow, minus temperatures and hard frosts.
It might not be the kind of spring we want —
But it is beautiful anyway.

It was a blustery, spring evening —
But the light was delicious.
Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock
As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.
She was happy to look over her kingdom
Bathed in golden light.
(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

Spring on ice is a lovely performance
With frozen splashes of purple,
Iced over buds of yellow
And the green candles of evergreens
Decorated with nature’s lights of ice.
(As you can see, we’ve have had some cold weather this week.)

Here in Sweden, we have a fifth season that I like to call Springter.
It’s that mixture of spring and winter —
With spring promising warmth one day,
Only to go back two steps to winter;
Then forward a step to spring.
You could say it’s spring and winter
Performing a salsa!

Just back from Dusseldorf in Germany
(We didn’t go to Brussels in the end).
After work, we walked along the Rhine,
Enjoying dramatic skies
And the ornamental trees along the river bank.
Spring was in full swing:
Isn’t this magnolia in full bloom just gorgeous!
For more amazing skies, please visit: Skywatch.
Spring is all about
The glowing sun of flowers,
Where crocus petals
Drink in the rays
To reveal silhouettes
Of their secrets.
I love the way the petals and shadows
Create mosaics like stained glass windows, don’t you?
