Living at the Shuswap: The Spring Brings New Growth

A Photo Essay on Why I Love the Spring
by Bonnie Johnson

Apple trees blossom ...
... new growth appears on the old hill slide ...
(red convertible sits at the bottom of the hill)
 ... spring begins when Baby Blue-Eyes peek through the dried grasses ...
... pear tree in blossom ...
... rain begins to fall up The Narrows ...
... worms in a puddle on the road ...
look closely ... hard to spot 

(slightly left of centre and shaped like a question mark)
... for the cloud-lover, Rebecca ...
... new ferns ...
... hail in the strawberry patch ...
sorry Alberta, but that is the best B.C. can do for hail
... the sunset mirrors the colour of apple blossoms ...
 ... cherries bloom between the two cabins ...
... a typical meadow in the Spring  ...
... a glimpse of an evening paradise
... the sun sets on a perfect day ...

  1. Beautiful photos. Thanks for posting them so I could be there with you.

    The spring I was at the lake, my favourite things was the blossoming cherry trees between the two cabins. When I walked past them, I didn't want to stop breathing in. Everytime I exhaled, I had to stop smelling the flowers -- that seemed like a real drag.

  2. Breathtaking and amazing. Moiya, Arta and I spent last night and all today filing through our memory banks, bringing up loving and touching memories of the past family experiences. What a treat for us!
