Spring Sonnet for L and J

That was a little sonnet I wrote for Liv and her beau, after I walked home from work past all the beautiful blossoming trees ~ which of course, brought young love to mind ;)

Some other photos I took on my walk home:

I also spotted some Pieris japonica that Nikki was blogging about :)

and from my garden, my camellia is blooming ~ it has grown so tall this year ~

A wind picked up later on, just before sunset, and the clouds looked like a storm was brewing, however it didn't amount to much ~

No cherry blossom photo in the sun yet, but at least it is blossoming ~

A golden touch on the Pink Dogwood branches in the front as the sun set ~

  3. Glad you liked it, Liv ~ I've darkened the lettering, so it is more easily read. Yes, it is wonderful to see the blossoms at last! Now I just want everything to stay as it is for awhile, so I can breathe it all in!

    Thanks, Flighty :) It's spring at last ~

  4. Lovely poem for L and J :-) I love all the accompanying images of spring! And hey, there are those pieris-- looks liks a big shrub. Could you detect any scent?

  5. So you did, it looks much better now.

    I like that you called him my "beau", very fitting indeed.

    On the walk home from work this evening I was breathing it all in too! And listening to the robins and cardinals and mockingbirds singing their wee hearts out.

  6. Thanks, Nikki~ pleased you enjoyed the poem and spring photos. The pieris was up against a house, so didn't venture close enough to take a whiff, but there are lots around, so I'll make a point of checking to see if there's a fragrance. Now I'm curious...

    Hi Liv ~ yes, the birds do seem to be as excited as the rest of us to welcome spring and all that goes with it ~ :)

  7. Glo, let me say straight out that I wish my plumeria bush was as big and beautiful as yours is! Lovely pics from your walk and I like the extra touch of falling petals with the love sonnet :) Very sweet.
