It may be snowing outside, but I can hear the sweet song of the birds luring spring to come.
You know when you start hearing that chirping that spring MUST be coming soon [please, mother nature, please!]. I am so tired of the color gray – I cannot remember the last time I saw the sunshine or the color green. I do love the snow – especially untouched snow, blanketed over the streets and yards – no footprints, no tire tracks, but I’ve had enough of it and I’m ready for the melting and awakening to begin.
These prints remind me of these lines from Emily Dickinson’s “A Light Exists in Spring”:
A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.
This gorgeous photographic print is the work of Jennifer Simpson. Her work is airy and has a daydream quality to it – makes me feel like running through a meadow with the scent of blooming flowers at my nose and warm sunshine all around me.
This is a photo of one of Marie Antoinette’s hamlets at Versailles. So romantic and enchanting … like a little secret garden or something. I want to run away to France … ahhhhhhhh. Find this print and more at A La Parisienne on Etsy.
I thought I would finish this roundup with a burst of color and this “Las Guitarras” print almost jumps off of the page! So bright and bold! I love it. Taken by the great eye of M. Campbell – Zurek.
