you capture: spring (take two)

This week's you capture theme is spring again. We're supposed to do something completely different than we did last week. We were instructed to seek out different subjects, different colors, fresh angles and new perspectives. Last week, many people did flowers. I did lego men holding an oreo cookie, a scale, and a bikini. So this week, I felt justified in capturing photos of the botanical persuasion.

I finally worked up the courage to ask one of our local nurseries if I could snap a few pictures. Nurseries make me happy.

Look at this little guy. **sigh** I love him.

I love the little tags. To me, labels symbolize order. And since my life seems to be in constant disorder (and I mean that in a happily chaotic way), I appreciate the labels.

I wish I could think of something cleverly insightful to share about Spring. You know, new growth, new life, renewal, re-birth... It's just that I'm not really that smart.


And that, my you capture friends, is where you can stop. I'll admit, I go a little crazy over flowers, so my feelings will not be hurt if you stop here. But for anyone else that could use a SPLASH of color today, here you go!

I love order, too. I don't have it often. ;)

That second last pic of the petunia is amazing.

I'm itching to get to a greenhouse for tomatoes and peppers... and then I remember that we sometimes get snow at the end of May... and I sigh and wait. ;)

I love all of the little green shoots, but the last picture of the purple flowers is my favorite. So delicate!

Love all the colors. I, too, didn't have a typical "spring" picture last week, so I did plants this week too!

These are so pretty and colorful! Love greenhouses full of fresh, new plants ready to go in the ground!

I'm glad someone else did the assignment backwards :) Flowers are definitely fun to shoot this time of year!

Oh, you did such a nice job at that nursery. I loved all the colors almost as much as I enjoyed the angles and perspectives of the new green growths that you shot. Very impressive!

your photography is brilliant. (and now you've got me jonesin' for some 'bush pickle,' even though i haven't the slightest what sort of plant that is. they sure are darling in seedling form, though.)

also? i read further on and see that you have a mark II, and i just have to warn you to never disclose your address on this site or i may be overcome with temptation and drive over to swipe it from you. i mean borrow. borrow it from you.
