This week, WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Fresh, and over at Where’s my Backpack, the travel Theme is Spring…woohoo! Two hits for me…
I was at my favourite little Walled Garden today, where Spring has truly sprung with lovely fresh bursts of life, including blossom. So here are two images:
So pretty, Sue.
Thank you, Janet – I thought so!
Love that pink blossom on the trees. Definitely the start of summer.
Best wishes, Pete.
Summer’s pushing it a bit, Pete! 😀
Always looking forward…
Gorgeous spring photos Sue 🙂
Thanks, Sherri! I thought they shouted Spring loud and clear! 😀
That they do, that they do… 🙂
…ein frühlingshaftes Lächeln wünscht dir Alois.
Wonderful first day of spring photos…I really enjoyed your series.
Thanks, Charlie 😀
Gorgeous and what a wonderful day it has been to mark the first day of spring! 🙂
Thanks, Adrian! Hasn’t it been a fantastic day… Really lifted my spirits 😀
Me too Sue! Despite currently suffering through a bout of what appears to be ON, (I’ll be seeing my neurologist next week) and seeing the world in a very distorted, high contrast, doubled up, washed out, and generally very weird fashion, it was a pleasure to feel the warmth of the spring sunshine of my face! 🙂
Been there 3 times, and have the residual effects in my left eye….but I’ve mostly got used to it. I might also have been lucky, in that I’m sure I haven’t had it as badly as some… Hope you see the world more normally in the not too distant future.
Thank you Sue!
Wow! I hope the sun is shining tomorrow – I want to get out there and find some flowers!
Saw the forecast last evening…looks like sun on Sunday…appropriate!
Sunny here today too which probably means it will rain tomorrow 😦
Let’s hope not…
I think the cascading blooms are Stachyurus chinensis – I just happen to have a similar photo on my calendar! Aren’t they just lovely? Like a curtain of flowery rain.
Brilliant, Jude – I thought/hoped you might come up with the answer, and I’ve just looked up a garden reference with the name you gave. Sure enough, it looks exactly like the plant I had seen! 😀
Well I knew it wasn’t laburnum…
And I was pretty sure it wasn’t – wrong leaves!
Lovely spring blossoms, Sue. 🙂
Thanks, I was pleased to see them! And in the sunshine 😀
Gorgeous spring flowers. The unknown flower appears to be Laburnum.
The first is just like my Thursday haiku photo, isn’t blossom wonderful ? 🙂
Spring sunshine brings out the best in everything ! Lovely captures of the moment Sue .
Spring sunshine certainly does! It’s gone again today, but I’m hoping for more tomorrow…
So beautiful and uplifting! Should I be a buzz killer and mention it is snowing outside today over here? 😦
Oh no! Well, if it’s any tiny consolation, the weather is overcast, dull grey, windy and quite cold here today…..

makes the heart blossom afresh!! Lovely photos Sue!!
Thanks! It seems amazing now, as the weather is grey, overcast, miserable today!
Those are beautiful photos! Yes, it definitely looks like spring… especially the pink blossoms 🙂
Thank you! They were rather lovely….
That first one positively glows, Sue 🙂
Good! Glad you liked it 🙂
Brilliant sunshine blossoms Sue, like postcards from a foreign country! Still a little on the Siberian side here!
Ah, I’m glad I could give you a postcard, Patti!
These are both beautiful, and I don’t think we have them in Tennessee. (Could be wrong, however.) Thanks for posting them.
Glad you like my little bit of Spring!

Delightfully fresh Sue! The yellow flowers resemble the Tunbergia we had in our fern house up in the hills.
Tunbergia? That’s a new one on me, but then I’m no botanist 😀
Wonderful Spring Time Sue!!
Thank you! 😀
