Leap Into Spring Challenge: Blossoms/Trees

For winter's rains and ruins are over, And all the season of snows and sins.

The days dividing lover and lover, The light that loses, the night that wins.

Photobucket

And time remembered is grief forgotten.

Photobucket

And frosts are slain and flowers begotten.

And in green underwood and cover...

Thank you so much to all who have taken the time to share beautiful images in the Leap into Spring! Photo Challenge. I know it is yet one more thing on your busy to-do lists and your participation and continued support mean so much to us!

spring photography challenge, kristi live and love out loud photo challenge, project alicia photo challenge, bumbles and light photo challenge,

I’m teaming up with Rebecca of Bumbles and Light and Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud to bring you the Leap Into Spring! Photo Challenge – a 6-week photography challenge aimed at capturing the beauty of spring.

Just a Few More Details...
Not experiencing spring in your part of the world? No problem. All are invited regardless of geographic location.

Two prompts to choose from each week! Share your favorite images inspired by one of our weekly prompts. Or both. It’s totally up to you.

The linky will remain open from 9am Friday – 9am Thursday CST. Leap Into Spring! blog post or Flickr photo, not your blog’s home page or Flickr photostream. Feel free to share your photos in our Leap Into Spring! Flickr Group as well.

We’ll be showcasing some of your lovely photos by pinning our favorite submissions to our Leap Into Spring! Pinterest Board each week.

We love Instagram just as much as you do! We’ll be on the lookout for your lovely spring photos, so be sure to use the #leapintospring hashtag.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to grab our lovely button!

Make sure to swing by Bumbles and Light where Rebecca will share tips on perspective and perception, important aspects of good photography.
