I’m finishing out my spring inspiration posts with another flower-heavy edition. I know that it’s been a bit of a flower overboard on the blog lately. Shockingly (not), I love spring. Few things make me happier than green grass, flowers everywhere, and the days getting longer. And then it’s summer! I’m so psyched to start sharing summer inspiration, which I may or may not have been collecting on Pinterest for a couple of months already. But today, it’s a final round of colorful, largely floral inspiration. Check out all of my spring picks on my spring photography Pinterest board.
The spring floral show, For the Birds, is up and running at the Mitchell Park Domes through May 29! As always, the Domes did a fabulous job with their featured seasonal show. The flowers are so colorful, and the birds scattered throughout the exhibit add such a sweet touch. A local organization donated the bird feeders and bird houses for the exhibit.
The flowers featured include blue hydrangeas, white Easter lilies, multicolored tulips, and forget-me-nots as well as flowering crabapple trees. (Thank you to the Domes Facebook page for providing this information because I don’t know the names of most flowers.) The birds featured are native to Wisconsin and include robins, red-tailed hawks, mourning doves, loons, and grackles. If you visit with kids, you can pick up scavenger hunt sheets to help you find the different flowers and birds.
Remember my early spring inspiration post? My spring photography board is still going strong on Pinterest. A month later, the views outside are starting to resemble the images on the board. The grass is green, the trees are starting to bloom, and green shoots are popping up all over the place. The daffodils really came out in full force during the Easter weekend, which was very exciting. I can’t wait to see more plant growth over the coming weeks. My summer photography board will be a little more varied. But my spring board is all about the flowers. I’m sharing just a few of my favorite images here today.
