Poppy about to pop.
Spring is bustin' out all over.
A sign of the tender, young virginal Spring primping for all she's worth before the over the top, overblown, riotous, blatantly lush hussy known as Summer comes strutting in to take centre stage.
Further evidence of spring being sprung.
Okay, so I cheated here a little in that the butterfly isn't actually alive per se, but it is real, and I did find it on the sidewalk out front of our house. Circle of life, and all that. Memento Mori. Naturmort.
So sue me already!
This posting started out with just the poppy but seeing as no one was paying attention, I added the robin's egg. And then as an afterthought, snuck the lilacs and butterfly in. Thus, the title may be slightly misleading but I did maintain the general springiness in the step of the theme, n'est-ce pas?
