Lens-Artists Challenge #143: Colorful April

This week for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, we are challenged to share some colorful photos to represent the spring-like April.

It’s an amazing experience to see spring arrive here in Utah. It’s so spontaneous that you’d feel like you’ve woken up in another world. I took a drive into the mountains last weekend, hoping to see blossoming wildflowers but instead, this was the landscape I encountered. Nope, still winter, still barren and cold.

After a rainy Tuesday, when I arrived at the mouth of my neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon, I saw all the trees had transformed overnight from barren branches to pink and white patches of tiny flowers. Even my backyard became interesting overnight with my Fruitless-Asian-Pear, Japanese plum, and Bing Cherry trees sprouting flowers. It was quite a sight and that was definitely the moment to say, “Spring has Sprung.”
