"The Trees are bare, but the flowers are there"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 April 2011 in Plant & Nature.

I took this shot about 1-1/2 weeks ago and since that time the trees have really been pushing out the florets, buds and small leaves. The Daffodils and Grape Hyacinth have been waiting, ready to give the trees a welcome party. Once spring sets in, things move quickly around here.

I hope I am not "Daffodilling" everyone to death...Tomorrow will be the last one in this "Daffy" Series...Thanks for tuning in.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
