Seven Day Nature Photo – Day Four Spring is springing!

I have been nominated by my friend Gilly, the very lucid Gypsy, to take part in a challenge of a photo per day for seven days, of anything from the natural world.

Today, I am posting some shots taken early yesterday morning in a small garden dear to me… As I strolled in the sun, I saw plenty of evidence of spring. Leaves springing up from well-pruned branches, witch hazel in abundance, blossom in full sway, magnolia flowers bursting out…

Today I would like to nominate Janet of Sustainabilitea, who amongst other things likes mountains, oceans and deserts, to take part in the 7-day Nature Photo Challenge.

I would love to see what she might come up with for this challenge….. No problem if you are far too busy/don’t want to take part, Janet!


  1. Good morning, Sue, and thanks for the nomination. As I do mostly nature anyway, I think I can manage to do this. 🙂 Love your photos, BTW, especially what you did with the last one.

    Happy Thursday!


  2. Nice to see the season changing, and to benefit from some vitality at long last. Nice shots, Sue, and the bottom picture is wonderful!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Beautiful images, Sue. I especially love the last one. 🙂

  4. You are more advanced than us. You give me a taste of something to look forward to with your divers floral portfolio.

  5. Spring is such a beautiful time of the year! Lovely captures Sue.

  6. Lovely images – so fresh and pretty!

  7. Gorgeous Sue, I hope the sun was shining on the witch hazel so you got the fragrance!

  8. Ah, Sue…lovely! The last one wonderful!

  9. Suzanne

    The last photo here shows your strength as a photographer. I am glad you are still doing these beautiful flower studies. I find them inspirational for my own work.

  10. Love that last one, Sue! 🙂 You’d be so happy with my tulips right now. They’re tumbling, petal by petal, onto the hearth. Soon there won’t be any left. 😦 Happy Saturday!

  11. It must be so good to see spring unfolding so beautifully.

  12. Nothing so beautiful as Spring. Lovely images.
