Signs of Spring in the Studio Ju Ju Gardens

Even though I’ve lived in Vermont most of my life, spring always takes me by surprise – the smells, sounds, warm sun and the pure pleasure being outside without the need for a coat! All so easily forgotten after our long winters.

The scenes here were photographed this morning. I’m posting this at about 7pm. After just one warm sunny afternoon, the view has become dramatically more colorful and green. Even the soundscape has changed (more on that later!) These photos captured a fleeting moment when the colors were just starting to come out against a lavender backdrop of naked tree branches.
