Time to think Spring

in #flowers4 years ago (edited)

I have been extra busy so far in January. Looks to be settling down for awhile. I have so many responses to my posts and new followers. I have noticed a trend on lots of flowers posted in your replies. I love it! I also thank you for them, and for your interest in my blog. So many kind words. I also appreciate your patience when I am slow in responding to what you write and your up-vote (cannot forget the re-steeming).

I came up with the title because my father would always end his letters to me with : "Think Spring" when writing me during the winter!

Here in North Idaho winter is still going strong. Had a temporary thaw, but this morning it is snowing again. What better time to post more flower pictures I have taken. Some are a few years old and taken with one of the first affordable digital cameras. I believe only 7 pixels. Some were taken with my phone. Might be a one or two with my newer Cannon Rebel.

Hope you enjoy. This first one was fromn a plant that my father gave me a few years before he passed. I have not been able to get any delphiniums to grow properly since:

In anticipation of Spring one must include daffodils I may have posted this one before but do like it!

This next 2 photo was taken at Manito Park & Botanical Gardens in Spokane, Washington. I need to make a visit this summer so I can get photos with my newer Canon camera:

And to close out this post I have one of the pretties Dahlias I have seen. (of course for me when I first see a flower I think it is the most beautiful flower ever).

Enjoy...I am still pulling together more wildlife video clips to share. I have a lot to go through and pull out those that are different from previous posts.

I appreciate everyone's support. Steem on!

@r2cornell,
Wow this is amazing photography and I am awaiting to see your videos of the nature around you!

Cheers~

Thank you I appreciate it very much. I have lots of video clips of wildlife, and the surrounding forests and of course my gardens.

@r2cornell,
I am crazy to watch the nature around you! Hope you will post them soon!
Have a great day ahead!

Cheers~

When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.

Beautiful photo. And great thoughts on the changes of the seasons.

Very beautiful flower. What is the name of the flower!

i called it "YELLOW QUEEN" 👑 i didn't know the real name i love call things with my own names you can check out my blog and see that lol

It is very beautiful!

I think it is very similar to hibiscus flower. Here it is very popular in red colour as @optama putting on her hair in the first comment. I have Chaptered this yellow hibiscus few days ago.

hey.. @r2cornell..
sir it's some analysis of spring....

Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it will be autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa. At the spring equinox, days are approximately 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses.

Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Often, cultures have locally defined names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe. Spring is the time when many plants begin to grow and flower..

I Love Gardening.images (2).jpg.
Hope You like My Gardening..........
Great photography.This nature is awesome Dear.

Very nice. It is amazing what you can grow in a small space. I have a lot of space, but still use containers for flowers and some vegetables.

There's nothing special,I just buy some flower tree when it was little.I just take care of it and give them some water morning and evening.

We also have winter season right now just like North Idaho but spring season is the most admirable and fantastic season of the world. There are so many colorful flowers and much more to see in the spring season. We always appreciate good and colorful things, in other ways, it actually tempted us in no time, that's the beauty of life, even a colorful life.

You've taken a very good pictures using mobile and Canon Rebel. I don't have enough money to buy Canon that's why I always used my smartphone for taking colorful flower images which I've shared on my blog. So, I'm happy you're relevant to my niche. I would love to follow @r2cornell . :)

Thank you for your kind words. Maybe you can earn enough on Steemit to get the camera of your dreams. It took me a few years of saving, and cryptocurrencies aided in the process. I looked at some of the photos on your blog. Very good!

Yeah, I noticed that you upvoted me on two of mine posts and I'm thankful to you. I'm sure that I can get Cannon with the help of steemit earning. Let's see what happened in the future. :)

Thank you for your kind words.Love to hear from your side every time. :)

Last month I was buying a floral center piece for the holidays and a young man approached me and told me he was getting together with a lady he recently met and asked if I thought a similar floral arrangement would be appropriate to bring when he went to her place for a holiday meal. I said if you really like the young lady by all means yes it is appropriate. I then reminded him that if he really liked her he better plan on buying flowers periodically. He laughed and said yes he did really like her and he would remember to continue bringing her flowers as their relationship continued to whatever end. I hope they make it to the age of this couple and is continuing as I suggested. :o)

Beautiful flowers. The flowers go well with this young lady!

When it's winter we sometimes need a few reminders how beautiful the nature looks when it's no longer winter! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos. Feeling the good vibes of spring immediately :)

Thank you. Yes we do need reminders of Spring to get us through the final stretch of winter. I enjoy all of the seasons, but as we approach a new season I always start looking forward to it.

What joy is there in the air in the sky, in the spring, in the morning, everybody swings in the morning, all the flowers in the morning, and the birds sing,
Spring is like another, your garden and flowers look like spring has come,
spring time is a great time for all,
