Spring is the season of emergence.
Definition of spring: to come into being by growth; the earliest or freshest time of something; the transition between winter and summer
Easter is named after the Teutonic goddess, Eastre or Eostre, the spring goddess for renewal and fertility.
Persephone is the goddess of spring growth and bounty in Greek mythology. She is forced to spend part of the year in the underworld with her husband, Hades. When she returns to the earth in spring, flowers bloom and growth begins. Her return to the underworld in winter is marked by the dying of plants and the pause of growth.
Spring is the emergence from rest, from hibernation, from a pause.
The garden begins to breathe, to grow...
Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~ Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You
Plants seek the sun. They open up their arms, fingers...
Buds form before offering flower displays...
In Roman mythology, Flora is the goddess of flowers and spring.
When spring begins, rest is over and production and growth begin...
Color begins to adorn the garden...
Life is evident and unmistakable...
Spring is here in all its glory and sunshine...
Bloom season has begun...
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~ Charles Dickens
I am joining Donna at Garden's Eye View for her Seasonal Celebrations blog meme. She hosts this meme on the first of the month prior to the equinox or solstice.
March 15 is Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, and I am joining in with this display from my garden. See what other garden bloggers have blooming from gardens all over the world.
I am also joining Diana at Elephant's Eye for her Dozen for Diana meme. My favorite plant this month has to be narcissus. The daffodils are making a wonderful early show.
