love is all around when violets are all around

Violets are one of Spring’s most loved flowers – few plants symbolize the renewal of nature as much as the violet.

Violets have already started to pop up so I went for another photo walk to discover and photograph them.

More blue violets:

Even more violets!

It was lovely sunny morning and as you see I found lots of lovely blue violets.

Have a sunny day you too,

Blossom Time

Some early Spring trees are blooming in Tbilisi and I’m so excited. I walk in the city like a shopaholic in a shopping mall, searching for the perfect Spring accessory – beautiful blossoms!

And I like all of them! Especially plum blossoms, which usually open well before the leaves, creating a cloud of white flowers against a backdrop of leafless branches.

After a warm February in Tbilisi, plum and apple trees have already reached full bloom.

I love them when they are at their brightest and best!

This is a tiny part of my tree blossom collection:

That’s all for today. In a couple of days I will post more blossom photos. I promise!

Have a great Spring day,

Shorena

Tiny Life is Bursting Out

I’m fascinated when spring starts winning over winter – when green leaves burst out of the ground and stretch up towards the sun.

Sometimes they emerge from very barren places and begin their struggle to survive and thrive. This little plant was my favorite!

For Love of Ivy

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Ivy is my absolute favorite plant. I can spend hours and hours photographing it – climbing up buildings and walls, through tree canopies, on the ground. I love it in every season of the year, in every way and condition – when it is green, red or even completely dried out.

Every single ivy plant is a finished piece of art for me.

These natural fractals are beautiful all year round – their green color brings concrete jungles to life and gives me energy and joy.

It is my dream one day to have a big house completely covered by ivy and even more – to be surrounded by a lush garden of ivy!

Do I really need that big house if take into account the significant disadvantages, such as HIGH maintenance and never ending cleaning? Not really, though a big house would have large walls that could be covered with MORE ivy. Would it be too much? Would it quench my passion for exploring the city to take millions of photos of ivy-covered walls? Or would I get really bored of it? I don’t know. Right now, there can never be enough ivy for me!

For this post, I collected photos of ivy growing on colorful walls. Have a look and let me know what you think.
