Happy Spring Day

I always look forward to the flowering of the little plum tree in my backyard. It means that Spring is finally here, and my garden is being renewed. It's also time to get off my butt and actually plant some vegetables.

But I'm not ready yet to work; I just want to enjoy the warm weather and scenery. So yesterday afternoon Baby and I went to the park near our home.

I took lots and lots of photographs with my cellphone. Especially the flowers....


















We walked around the dam.........


















Enjoyed the colourful scenery.


















Walked down the bank of a small pond near the dam and photographed a lonely flower.


















Then we sat on the benches to watch the sun set, listening to the birds sing.

















It was a lovely, relaxing time. And something that I hadn't realised we needed so much after the brutal winter.

For me as a writer, Spring is also a time to sow; time to review what I've done for the year; to cut out the chaff, improve what I can, work flat out on projects I wanted to do but did not manage to get to them. Spring is time for me to start setting up systems for new objectives , so by the time the year ends, I can relax and not be under pressure to make resolutions..

So, do what does Spring mean to you?
