celebrate spring...

"welcome, wild harbinger of spring..."
~bernard barton~

Spring is officially here! 
 Although with the record breaking weather that we have been having here in Chicagoland,
 i would say it is closer to summer.  We have been having day after day in the 80's! 
I have been tempted to turn on the air conditioner several times,
 but i just could not flip that switch in March.
  But i  did finally brake down and put on my shorts.
 It was just too warm to care about my white legs.
I think we will be talking about this spring for many years to come.

There is a home down the street that has thousands of bulbs that are just bursting with colour.  Everyday i take a walk down there with my camera and doddlebug at my side.  It is a photographers paradise!

Today i am so excited to link my photo to an amazing blog...Focusing on Life.
This is a collaborative blog of ten friends that have found each other thru their love of photography and the internet.  Some many of the names i recognize from my Big Picture e~classes.  They are amazing photographers who always inspire me. 
This is their first linky party and i am sure it will be a huge success!
Be sure to click here to discover all their talent! 

Until next time...


  1. Hey you darlin thing -- thanks sooo much for posting to our FOL Link -- :) its been a frustrating morning and you brightened it!

    Love your photo... Soooo Spring!

  2. What a gorgeous, gorgeous post. We too have been having the craziest March here in Massachusetts. One day it's 80, the next 30. I am enjoying it anyway. Love your photograph.

  3. Love your post, Nancy! Crocus were one of my favorites during my short stint in the east (we don't have them here in the desert) and this brings back memories of that time. However, they were usually popping up through snow! Glad you are having such a wonderful spring and thanks for being a friend of Focusing on Life.

  4. I love to see the little crocus pop up in the spring! This image of them is so beautiful!

  5. I love bulbs. the crocus are gorgeous.

  6. Just look at those beautiful flowers! (sigh!) Spring is my favorite season!

  8. Oh thank you so much Nancyjean...such a nice thing to say about our blog. These little crocus buds are so sweet,perfect springtime image..

  9. These are always the first thing I think of when you say Spring. Great color

  10. Lovely shot of the pretty purple crocuses! I had some that lasted about two days! I think you have our warm weather -- No. California has been wet and cold for weeks.
