April 18, 2017

Time for a spring view. Birch and maples are budding out in rose and green. The grass is growing, too. Spring at last!

For contrast, here are winter and autumn shots:

It’s nice to live where there are four distinct seasons. Summer awaits!

    All the photos are great.
    I can not decide what I like more in October or April!

  2. Cathy says:

    That is a lovely view – I particularly love the autumn colour, but in spring it is wonderful to watch the trees slowly turn pink as the sap rises, and then burst into all imaginable shades of green! Here the recent rain has transformed the view up into the woods within just a few days!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I’m glad you got some good rain. I love the soft shades as the tree buds swell. Spring is the opposite of fall, instead of falling down, it is building up. You can almost hear the leaves expanding!

  3. Widdershins says:

    It sure is!. Where I lived in Australia, we had ‘hot’ (and getting hotter) and ‘not-so-hot’.

  4. Wow! Spring has arrived!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Alice Pratt says:

    I like the house…or barn, with the red roof.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, that is a big barn that goes with the white Victorian house. I chose it as my central focus point for this series. I walk over to that hill as well where I see the view of the farm where this shot was taken. Our happy little valley!

  6. It’s always nice to see the seasons change. Still waiting for spring – it’s coming on very slowly here๐Ÿ˜

    I like the little tree standing separately.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      That is an heirloom apple that is quite tasty, even if the fruit is mishapen and untended. The deer enjoy the drops and often are seen browsing in this field at night.

    I’m glad to see you’re out from under the snow!

    It’s so nice to see three seasonal views of the same landscape. You just need one more for summer.

  10. MK says:

    Congrats, but I still like Autumn best!!!!! And please don’t say the S—-r word too loud. We don’t want that to happen until August.

  11. Jet Eliot says:

    Wonderful to have these seasonal photos taken from the exact same spot. Each season is beautiful, Eliza.

  12. Rebecca says:

    Hi Eliza, I love these ‘time snap’ shots of yours. You must be really looking forward to spring by now!

  13. March Picker says:

    A beautiful view and fun comparison!

  14. It’s amazing how the colors change!

  15. Our lawn mowers came by today to mow for the first time – and it was probably well after it was necessary. It smelled wonderful!

  16. Christina says:

    I agree about the seasons, here they often mix and confuse themselves.

  17. Robin says:

    You’re greening up! You have such a beautiful view, in all seasons. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Laurie Graves says:

    Beautiful any time of year. Do you burst into song when you go outside? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. Jim R says:

    There is a big difference between those seasons. Do you have a favorite? My guess is no.

    This week has been an explosion of spring things here in IA.

  20. dorannrule says:

    I used to live where the seasons blurred. I would miss nature’s escapades if we ever moved back. Your contrasting photos are a reminder.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Dor. I would miss the seasons, too, if I ever lived in a different climate. Although, a shorter winter wouldn’t be so bad! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Looks like all the seasons are wonderful!

  22. Brian Skeys says:

    The autumn picture is beautiful.

  23. There is beauty in each season!

  24. Chloris says:

    Such a beautiful view whatever the season.

  25. Brenda says:

    Woohoo. Welcome spring!! Although we have a cold wind blowing today and good fire in the stove. She’s a flirt, this spring. Don’t you love seeing the red haze of maple buds across the hillside? Time to start planting.

  26. Spy Garden says:

    Growing up in southwest Florida, I especially appreciate now living in a place where the seasons change! Your view is very nice. Love the different pictures together for comparison. You will have to stop over to Spy Garden to see our big Easter surprise!!! Wooo for spring!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks much, I do love it here.
      Glad you gave me a heads up about your post- I am way behind in my Reader and probably won’t ever catch up. Your holiday was much more exciting than mine (not hard to do). I’m just thrilled it is spring at last!

  27. Nice post … happy spring. Things are looking greener here too … although we woke up to a light coating of snow this morning! It is all melted now and we could use the moisture.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Denise. We always heard that spring snow is the poor man’s fertilizer. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d be happy for the moisture, too.
      Happy Spring!
