Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


I know it’s only the 22nd of February, but Spring is coming! Here’s my first flower picture of the year, taken a few days ago ๐Ÿ™‚

(In case it’s not obvious, I don’t own a macro lens anymore and I’m not fully familiar with my new camera but I’m learning as I go along!)

    • Thanks Tony! I love winter, but it feels great when the days are getting longer and small flowers start to pop up everywhere ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I know what you mean. I love all seasons but spring fever is special, maybe it’s the days getting lighter or something but the warmer days and sights of new plant life is like a drug๐Ÿ˜Š Well I think so, don’t do drugs but don’t need to especially on spring days๐Ÿ˜Š

        • Exactly! I’m glad I live in a place where we have four seasons, but spring is special. I think it’s the light that makes the biggest difference for me. No drugs, the world is more beautiful without ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I have seen buds here and even pussy willows but not a good thing because we are bound to get more snow and cold and it may stunt growth. But I sure like your promise of spring. There is something about yellow flowers that is so uplifting.

    • I hope your flowers make it! Here in Amsterdam it’s unlikely (though not impossible) we’ll get more snow. I agree with you, yellow is a “happy” color on spring flowers ๐Ÿ™‚
