  9. Isn't spring the most wonderful with all the bursts of color? A drive down a country road yesterday reminded me that dogwoods (although right now still a little green) will be extra special in just a few days and our crabapple tree is just about to burst!

    Charleston must be a wonderful place to experience all this color.

  18. A great series full of magnificent color and framing. My favorite is the first with that nice close-up of the leaves with beautiful shades of green and gives the impression of eavesdropping on the photo. Have a great weekend!

  25. This is a nice series of spring color in the urban SC environs. I haven't quite figured out your blog, as there only seem to be randsom spots where comments are allowed rather than after evey photo. Of this series, I particularly like the foxgloves with the somewhat defocused statue behind.
