Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #29: Winter Meets Spring

Seeing as how Spring has just sprung, Carly wanted us to photograph something that brings the change to life:

It's that time again, when we have converging seasons. Next Friday, winter will transition into spring here in the northern hemisphere, so let's see what the change will be like in your neck of the woods. Please post new photos for this one, as opposed to posting photos from your archives. Now I know that some folks don't live in areas that see very much of a difference between seasons, and so there is an alternate assignment for you, but if you do live in an area that is just bursting to come alive with the colors of spring, please show me the celebration. Show me WINTER MEETS SPRING!

We don't have any snow left around here, and no frost in the morning lately, but I was able to get this shot of one of our tulips pushing through the ground.

I have no idea what type of tulip, if there even are different types, that this one is. They were planted before we moved here. They surprised us on our first Spring in the house 5 years ago.

How about some fresh grass? I will admit that this grass is in a cup in our window and not outside, but my daughter planted it at school, how do I not show it off?

Question of the Week: What do you think about Spirit Photography? Is it possible to photograph a spirit or ghost?

Short answer: No. I'll just leave it at that.

Have a good week!

Hiya Mike :)

Very creative this week, kuddos to the kiddo for growing the grass! Well done that! I am very pleased you shared it with us. :) Aren't tulips pretty? You will have to do an update when it has fully opened so we can see it in it's glory. What color is it? I am going to guess yellow, as that is the color I am seeing the most of lately.

Have an excellent week!

I love the tulip coming up, and the grass your daughter has grown. Both are excellent for the theme!

Nice to see spring popping up where you are. What a pleasant surprise for tulips to appear when you didn't expect them!

Love the new sprout coming up. I wish we had grass that looked that good.
