Spring Things - Variety Pack

If we could buy spring beauty like we could a variety pack of cereal, what might we find?

Perhaps these primroses in my back yard.

Perhaps a weeping cherry (I loved the lighting) on the West Side of Binghamton, New York.

Perhaps a bed of tulips in front of a housing development for seniors in downtown Binghamton, open and welcoming the sunshine.
Perhaps a forsythia and a magnolia near the Broome County courthouse in Binghamton.
And perhaps some daffodils in a front yard in Westover, near Johnson City, New York.

But wait!  Variety packs usually have six boxes, don't they?  Well, here is my 6th spring thing.
Even an abandoned factory building (the former BAE plant in Westover, ruined by our flood of September 2011) can be beautiful on a sunny day in upstate New York.

If you could make up a spring variety pack, what would be in yours?


  1. LOVE the weeping cherry - fantastic lighting! Thanks so much for sharing such lovely, springy photos!

  2. Love the pics! You caught such wonderful examples of beauty. Here in So Cal, things are already in bloom. In fact, my daffodils have already bloomed and gone! I love tulips, daffodils, Gerber daisies, azaleas, big, droopy weeping willows and magnolia trees.
