Spring Photo Journal

Yesterday, I was looking at the tree outside my window, and thought I saw the start of tiny buds. I thought it would be nice to see this tree come to life as the days and weeks progress into spring and summer. I just took this picture showing winter's starkness. I found a collage maker thanks to @JudyEv, and am trying it out for the first time. These are the first two pictures, showing just the tree, and then the neighborhood immediately in front of my apartment building. This is my first attempt at making a collage. So, there is a lot of white on the photo.

If you do not want to use a graphic program, do it the easy way using an online program.

@LadyDuck I've asked a myLot member to help me. He has done it before and I think he'll do it again

@JudyEv recommended befunky dot com. I tried it for the first time this morning, and it was easy @MALUSE.

I'm still impressed with your collage! By the time we get home, spring will be very active in our yard.

I hope the snow will be gone by the time you get home. Or wasn't your home in the track of the storm?

@just4him My son said he only received 3". As it hit the driveway it melted immediately.

I like to use graphic programs and I easily create collages with many photo frames. Today was a beautiful sunny day here too.

@just4him I also had a couple of computer software to make collages. I have to check if they are installed on the computer I use right now.

@just4him No, no buds showing yet. We do have green shoots belonging to perennials popping out of the soil, but no buds on bushes or trees.

Well now that Mother Nature has a visual of what we expect, might she deliver the warmth of Spring ?

@enlightenedpsych2 With the way this winter was, and how Mother Nature unleashed her worst on us, I'm ready for a beautiful spring, and a not too hot summer.

nice pictures. While I was doing my upper body workout on Wednesday, I noticed that some of the trees outside my window was getting buds of greenery. I'm still a little sore from the workout.

The snow is beginning to melt here and we have more grass than usual. I'm happy about that.
