When spring settles, here in Québec, nature really awakens in a vibrant way.
First, it starts with a bright green canvas, that alone would be enough to make us forget the harshness of winter. It takes only a couple of days to switch from one season’s pallet to the next. And then, all you have to do, is wait patiently. Because no matter if the temperature drops under freezing point a couple of times still, you know that the clement weather fireworks are just about to start.
And one by one, a rainbow of delicate petals unfold, and it is just a matter of wanting to see the magic happening.
Magnolias, tulips, lilies, daysies, dandelions… Blooming in a joyous harmony. Never trying to compete to be the most beautiful, just turning to the sun to feed on its warmth. All following the swirling baton of their conductor, all the way to summer.
And these little beauties above should be joining the choir any day now… With their vibrant blues and yellows, I have a feeling they won’t have to remind us that they are forget me nots.
This year, I am dedicating my A to Z Challenge to revisiting 26 of my favorite Instagram pictures, and the memories that cling to them. If you’d like to get the full list of my challenge post, just click here.
