Spring Ritual






"Spring Ritual"  -   painting by Meg Watson






The dancing daffodils are leaving us again for another year.

 Yellow trumpet heralds have already gone and the others are fast fading.

































Thank you for visiting

Daffodils blooming is a cheerful sign of spring! You captured those flowers well.
I hope you have a good spring.

I have a thing for crows - they photograph so beautifully and their intelligence comes through in the picture. The daffodils are finished here and the tulips nearly finished. A very hot spell sped everything along.

Fabulous photos Ruby! The artwork is so colorful and you have taken great shots of all the daffodils, and love how the crow is staring right at you. Thank you for for linking with Today's Flowers, and happy weekend :)

Love the painting - what is the Spring ritual? Your captures are out of this world! Many thanks for being a part of SEASONS with these absolutely beautiful photos! There's no way I van choose a favorite:):) Have a happy week and see you soon:) You are lucky I just caught this before going to bed. The others will have to wait till Sunday night (here in California).

Your daffodils are gorgeous. I find the Spring Ritual also fascinating. Wishing you a good new week!

Beautiful bright daffodils. It is too mild here for them to grow and I miss them.

dritanje said...

It's a lovely way to let Meg's paintings be seen and appreciated.
The daffodils are still here, but here is always a little later than the city.
I'm glad you included the watchful crow - fabulous!

Very beautiful and pretty flowers.

I know that daffodils don't stay with us for a long time (I remember from when we used to grow them in Oregon) but aren't they wonderful while they last! (And at least you have them for a while -- none here in our part of Florida -- and I miss them.) Thanks for sharing yours.

Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

KL said...

Stunning photography. Who knew that the inside of the daffodil is so warm and fuzzy..true daffodils are leaving us for another year..sigh...

colleen said...

Love the art and the daffodil close-ups gave me a visceral reaction.

Hannah said...

Colorful art and I like your tribute to the daffodil, they really do make spring begin for me. I love the big trumpets and the tiny trumpets, and especially the scented ones. The cherry bark glistening makes a beautiful setting for the blackness of the crow, Ruby.

Donna said...

Daffodils are a spring ritual....they bring such cheer!

I felt like I went on a journey of yellow. First I saw the daffodiles far away, then closer and then right inside! I always am sad when they are finished. I just really like your blog and how you think, it seems to be like me! cheers.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Looks like you have crows with attitude in your area too, pretty daffodils.

Ida said...

Very vibrant painting. - The Daffodils were very pretty. They do come and go quickly. Just loved the shot of the Raven/Crow in the tree.

NatureFootstep said...

beautiful set of spring images :)

Cath said...

Lovely Spring images....I do wish those blooms would last longer!

stardust said...

Sorry to be late. I love Daffodils flowering gregariously which always reminds me of a poem by Wordsworth. I found Blackbird, which I’m unfamiliar with, was so beautiful.

The birds and the flowers; it doesn't get much better than that, does it?
