Early Spring is full of contrasts. From Empty Nests…
…to Not-so-Empty Nests!
From signs of destruction…
…to patchy promises of rebirth.
Ah, the powerful, cleansing renewal of Spring!
These pictures are only a few of the representative ones I was able to capture on two of my most recent early March hikes (except for the last, which was the first buttercup to pop its head up at my house this year, an early February riser – bringing with it my first promise of Spring).
