Selective Focus: Bloom

Aaron Reichow, “Trees in Bloom, East Hillside”

Though this past Winter wasn’t meteorologically devastating, it was personally; so I needed a keen reminder that “there is a time to every purpose,” as the homily goes. This Spring in my new home has been that sermon, as greige gives way to hues of lilac, cherry, and peach, and all becomes fructive, damp, and pliant again. We grow, we ready, we labor in hope of Summer rest, and a coming harvest.

In anticipation of these potentially misspent days in our near future, next week’s theme will be “idyll/idle.” Show us your personal conceptions of unsustainable happiness. Send unwatermarked, signature-less images by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m to tim @ perfectduluthday.com — 1000px at their largest dimension — along with title (if any), and URL of your website, Facebook page, Tumblr, or Flickr stream.

What are those blue flowers in Brian Barber's photo, anyway? We have them all over our yard, and they're usually the first thing to bloom in the spring. 

Michael McGraw, your three photos are a fantastic group. Really lovely.

It took me just about forever to find out what they were, but I finally did a few years ago: they're called Siberian squill.
