Spring, at last ?

I really hope that spring will stay in the country. I’m tired of the winter.
We are not used to have a winter that last that long !
Today we have a beautiful day. Went for a walk with the dog and saw the flowers were starting to bloom.
Feels like a rebirth.
Two days ago there was nothing to see on this shrub (I hope this is the correct name because I used an online translator to know the name for ‘a little tree’) and look now – almost - in full bloom.

The smell of nature is also particular in early spring. Difficult to describe.

On the other hand I started module 4 from the City and Guild course.
I have to make a collage.
I choose a subject : the beach, the sea and the sky.
Since this is an everyday scene for me, I found it appropriate to take that subject.
I have tons of blue scraps :
Those blues are too blue but never mind, I will find a way to tone them. I have to look for my beige and grays for the sand and also some greens for the sea.
Our sea isn’t blue but beige/greenish because of the tides.
In my eyes, this is the most beautiful place on earth to live.
Every time I come home I can smell the sea and the air an hour before I get home.
The pictures above weren’t taken on the same moment but it’s almost the same spot.

i wish you the best this season
Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear
that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments,
not the composer.
It is dry, hazy June weather. We are more of the earth,
The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
The splendor of the rose and the whitness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its lovliness.
It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings
