Spring Anew and So Fresh! :D


Joy of life is springing from almost all branches and corners of Mother Earth already and what better than to have a challenge that addresses the abundant beauty that Spring comes bearing. : )

Please share your 'Spring' shots of 2012 as you experience your very own Spring wherever you are on Planet Earth. : ))

Looking forward to freshening up!

Good luck all!

Yildiz


Specifications:

*1.. The challenge ends on April 30, 2012.
*2.. All photos are required to be 1024*1024 pixels at the most or under in dimensions and 250 KB in size if uploaded using the forum attachment feature. If you're linking your photo from an other gallery or website the size limitation does not apply

Couldn't it be a bit longer, Yildiz?
I don't think we would have enough of a Spring to show by that time.

Hi Dr. Harout, :D

Certainly. It can be much longer.

How about the end of April? Would that be fine for Armenian Spring duration?

I'll change the final date as you suggest.... : ) Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Hmm, spring arrived in town there indeed, David.

Very cheerful bunch of daffodils against the urban setting. : )
