Another digital challenge from Digital Craft Cottage, here is the Scrap-It Challenge for October 09: Everyone has a favourite season. Do you like the cool and rustic feel
of Autumn, or are you more a warm flowing spring person? Share with us
all what your favourite of these two seasons are and why, using
pictures and journalling incorporating more than a title.
I've chosen Spring as my favourite season and here is what the journalling says:
And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"
Spring is a very special season. I love to see the buds on the trees. My mother taught me to recognise the different buds, the long ones that look like cigars are from the Beech tree, the black sooty buds are those of the Ash tree, and those fat, sticky buds belong to the Horse Chestnut tree. When they start to unfurl and reveal their bright, fresh green leaves I feel my spirits lift.
The flowers of spring seem to be full of sunshine: yellow primroses, daffodils and the golden yellow of the gorse in the hedgerow.
Spring is a time of renewal and hope,
The arrival of the swallows heralds the promise longer and warmer days, yes spring is a very special season.
