Default May 2012 Challenge: Spring

I guess the appropriate reaction to the win is "far out!" Let's do "Spring" for May. Flowers, blue skies, rushing streams, green trees and more.

LOL! And I'm sure that Rodney or someone else from "down under" will mention they are getting ready for fall. But I still love the topic, we're also getting more toward early summer and I noticed the oak trees in the county park are leafing out and are a lovely green. So May, it is! On the other hand, I can always shoot a very grey May sky at work, too.

Congrats on the win. Of course, the topic makes my life more difficult as here in the UK we seem to swing between winter and summer, missing out spring!

Still at least we don't get -3C

Here's a starter. Figured I'd get the tulips in before the deer get them. I understand tulips are deer dessert treats.

ok I'll join ... because spring has been to wet, to cold, to dark tulips didn't really survive long enough.



It's a placeholder, so I might change it.
