Oakleaf hydrangea

It’s Spring, I hope. The one thing on my mind is getting out there, and getting busy. There are plants to bloom, grass soon to mow and dead leaves piled up in clusters.

I’m tired of winter and am celebrating Spring with a reminder that nature finds a way to live, to find joy in a simple bloom.

  1. Oh man, love this! Today I was just looking at some faded maple leaves that are clinging to the tree outside my window. They have such a delicate color that I thought, “How would I ever paint that?” But you’ve captured it here. I also love how the purple around the leaves foreshadows the blooms to come.
