Photo Challenge: What I Love About Spring!

Did everyone have fun with this challenge? It's been Spring-like here most of the time but there have been a few days that's made me wonder if Winter has been harder to shake this year. It's not too late to join us, just sign in and post your link over at the Photo Challenge Blog.  We love to see what others shoot!

I love the smell of the fields after a Spring rain and the growing crops peeking up out of the soil. The photo below is corn.

“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.”
― Virgil Kraft

It's amazing to watch the winter wheat fill it's heads with grain to be harvested in a few weeks.
“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

How awesome it is to see the blooms open up once again as the days grow warmer and longer.

“She turned to the sunlight
    And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
    "Winter is dead.”
― A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young

“I suppose the best kind of spring morning is the best weather God has to offer.”
― Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle

Very nice Brenda. I enjoy seeing your area.

I dip the morel mushrooms in egg and then a little flour and fry them up to eat. Nice with some of the trout I catch.

These are lovely, Miz Brenda! I especially like your processing on these. That second one is my favorite, with the crops reaching for the sky!
