This week, show us renewal.

“The ghostly winter silence had given way to the great Spring murmur of awakening life.” — Jack London

When I lived in South Carolina, fall was always my favorite season. It meant we were finally getting a reprieve from the relentlessly hot summers. I moved back to my native Ohio several years ago, and Spring has become my favorite season. For nature-lovers, there are few things more wonderful than the awakening of life after a cold, gray winter. Spring is a glorious green renewal.

This week, show us an image of an awakening. I’ve chosen a photo of a fiddlehead, the structure that rises from the ground, eventually to unfurl into the leaves of a fern. Those of you in the Southern Hemisphere are headed into autumn, and your environment is preparing for a winter rest. Your interpretation doesn’t have to be botanical in nature. I’m eager to see what you all share.

  1. Spring is my favorite season. Some prefer summer due to the warmth, but I’m not a big fan of wasps and biting things, so I’ll just stick to when the temperatures are perfect and the world is coming back to life.

  5. What a lovely shot. I just read a book set in my native Cleveland, and one of my favorite parts says that in Cleveland there is no spring–only winter and wet-winter. Glad you have proof that wet-winter is finally waning!
