spring is so different here in the south than it was in the north... at least this year. in ny spring always arrived with a bang. there would be little signs, here and there, and then suddenly every tree would explode in color at once. usually you would have a spectacular week of showy blossoms that really took your breath away. a slow greening would follow, leading into summer. it has been a whole different experience in georgia. we arrived here mid-march, and spring was already in bloom. i figured we would sadly miss most of it, expecting it to pass quickly. it is still going on! just when i think spring is giving way something new comes along. the flowers keep blooming, the weather is still mild... it's really a gentle and lovely experience. the world is already entirely green, yet spring is not done here. this week we were suprised to see the mountain magnolia trees in bloom. the giant leaves come out first, and then these huge seussian flowers appear. when they open, they too are giant... they make you feel like you are experiencing flowers from a gnomes perspective! they only last a few days... but when they are gone, i have the feeling there will be something new to discover soon!

join me on flickr, and please take a closer look at these photos individually. they are all so beautiful. also, please visit and add to lovely new group, *my inspirations*, started by the lovely kendall. adding your photos to a group is a nice way to meet other people, and get a lot of inspiration.

I grew up in the south, am currently living in Oregon and am headed back to New Jersey to live this week. Spring has been so different in all of these areas. I know what you mean about the explosion of color in the Northeast. It is like nothing I have ever experienced before. now I really have to see a Georgian spring...
