Travel Theme: Pale

Ailsa’s theme this week is “Pale“.  While it is very easy to think of Spring as being colorful, some of its most beautiful aspects are the slow display of color as the flowers begin to bloom. Two days ago, there were only a few stray daffodils in bloom.  Today, they’re everywhere, the vinca is blooming, and the trees are starting to bud.   There will be bright colors — maybe as early as tomorrow — but today, it was subtle.

Subtle Spring

  6. Subtle maybe….but beautifully subtle

    • Thanks! I love the subtleness. Even the brightly colored wild flowers in the woods have beautiful subtleness to them. You just have to look past the “here I am” shouting color in the fields by looking closely at the individual teeny flower parts. One of the reasons Spring is my favorite time of the year.
