I did so much whining about the cold during winter, that I figured I should try to give equal time singing the praises of spring. I’m also trying to capture my beautiful country road in photos in all four seasons, and today was the most gorgeous day to take photos. The weather was absolutely perfect, the birds were chirping, and on a day like this, all seems completely right with the world.

The leaves have budded out on the trees, and look like they’ll be fully open soon. I love the hay bales in the distance, and am glad the farmer didn’t end up needing them The bales are sitting at the end of the drive that leads up to the beautiful old barn I’ve shared with you as a printable HERE.
I tried to play around with my camera and wanted to take a photo of the flowers (weeds) on the side of the road in focus, with the road in the background out of focus, but I got the background a little too blurry. I’ll need to experiment with my settings and try again soon.
I also photographed my road in the autumn (HERE), and those photos are some of my favorites. When my in-laws were visiting for Thanksgiving, we got our first snowfall of the season, and I shot their Christmas card photos on the road, but I forgot to take a photo of the road by itself, and I’m kicking myself now, because the snow was fairly undisturbed and looked to peaceful and pretty. My computer crashed that had their Christmas photo on it, but here’s a scan of the photo from their card. See what a lovely photo of the road it would have been?
I’m not wishing for winter to come back any time soon, so I’ll just patiently wait for next winter to get that shot.
Hope you are having a beautiful Spring weekend!
