Hooray! Spring in Oklahoma has finally arrived! Aside from the occasional daffodil, flowers are blooming and trees are budding, bringing lots of color to this sometimes dry, drab state I call home. Here, see for yourself……
I found this fully bloomed Forsythia bush in Claremore as I traveled to work. The lavender porch behind it gives it a nice contrast. Here is another shot. I wanted to showcase the contrasting colors and I believe I succeeded. I really love this one!
And finally, this is a shot of Oklahoma’s state tree, the Redbud. I have 3 of these in my backyard and right now they are gorgeous! I’ve been trying to take some nice shots of the 3 of them without all the neighborhood clutter in the background. And once the wind dies down (which is a rarity around these parts) I will get some photos taken and posted. But, for now, this is one I took the other evening, showing the buds up close and personal.
I hope all of you can get out with your cameras and enjoy the Springtime colors before they disappear into Summer. I know I’m going to!
