Keukenhof in Spring/April

For lens-artist -photo-challenge, I am presenting four images taken from one place in Keukenhof garden. If standing on one point brings so much beauty and happiness, just imagine how much beauty the garden holds in it.

The April winds are magical,                                                                                                    And thrill our tuneful frames;                                                                                                  The garden-walks are passional To bachelors and dames                                          ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The mind should be allowed some relaxation, that it may return to its work all the better for the rest ~Seneca

One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others ~Lao Tzu

All images were taken in April 2018.

Walking around!

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk. -Raymond Inmon

The weather today was fantastic which insisted me take a stroll during lunch time. We clearly see spring signs. Instead of concentrating on distance covered I thoroughly enjoyed my time out in sun.

Tomorrow we shall expect rain, snow and strong winds. No worries!

These are my entries for Jo’s Monday walk.

You cannot touch the same water twice

And I say No two springs are the same.

Spring the season.

For Weekend 74, I am presenting images from earlier springs. This year the wet and cold weather didn’t allow the crouses to fully bloom and so far I haven’t seen a bee. It snowed for last two days and temperature is around zero.  Time to enjoy images from archives 😀

Hope you all are having relaxing weekend.
