Spring Promises - Inspiration and Hope

Hello Sweet Friends!

How are you?  How's your week?  Could somebody please tell me where the week went?  'sigh'  

I wanted to pop in and share a little piece of our world... shots from around our yard....and I'd love it if you shared your world as well. Feel free to link up below... if you wish. :)


a favourite front corner of our yard...  this poor old tree is getting weary... but I adore it.  


Beautiful budding trees are showing signs of hope and new life.

Even the crows are happy....

Ben is over the moon... loving the warmer weather and trips to the lake...dipping into the cold water then drying off in the sun... 

The robins are staking out the front porch... each year they build a nest on an old ladder we have attached to the brick wall.  As summer comes they will get more comfy with having us around...and closer shots will be snapped. :) But for now, this is about as close as they get when we're out and about.

The lilac bush is budding... Oh my gosh.. I can not wait til the lilacs bloom!  Burst..... 'happy sigh'

Almost overnight, the trees are coming to life again...after a long cold winter.  And honestly it fills my could with hope and truest gratitude....

And so my friends... there you have it... a little piece of our early May....  although it's not quite 'pretty''s beautiful...just as it is.

Feel free to link to your 'spring' photos below. Perhaps we can have a little monthly around the yard party? Hmmmm... just thinking out loud...

Stay tune.... :)






All of today's images shot with the nikon 70-200 lens... I'm in LOVE. 'sigh'

let's get this May Party started.....  

p.s. be sure to check out The Cuppa Cuppa Texture Love Link up...  It's completely inspired!!  

p.s.s. I'm sharing a texture tutorial at Rock The Shot. Pop by when you have a moment. :)

Beautiful images Kim, isn't it great to see the changes in and around our own homes. We've finally been able to do some much needed yard work inbetween thunderstorms but there's still a lot more to do.
Just beautiful! So very happy spring is finally here!

Your spring buds are marvelous ! Just found your blog through the shutter sisters (wow!) and think your textures may need to get into my tool box soon. Thanks for your tips too :-)

I know that you are just loving that new lens. I am keeping my fingers crossed to get a couple of new lenses this year too.
I want the 50 mm 1.8 and the 14-24mm 2.8. I am saving all my pennies and hold out for hope in getting those in my bag before the year is out. I've got ...repeat got to get a tri-pod too. I am getting so shaky as of late. Love all your yard shots. Ben looks very happy too!

Look how handsome Ben is! Isn't it amazing how the tiniest signs of Spring can make you so happy? Yay! We have tiny green leaves, and buds on trees, soon there will be blossoms!
