The City Waits For Spring




... Spring is on it's way to this great southern land ...
The trees are spreading their tendrils and new growth is bursting forth
Even in the shadow filled city ... new life is finding it's way.
... Just a few more days to spring ...
[speaking of waiting.. giveaway coming this week]

We're in the midst of summer's last hurrah. And while I love the fall, and the holidays ahead, I can't help but hold on to these warm golden days. But I am glad that you have warm and lovely days ahead! Have a wonderful week, and thank you so much for your always sweet comments!

I can't get used to this season difference between us. It is really fun having a friend on the other side of the world! We are preparing for fall (although it is still very much summer around here).

Carole said...

See just as you're anxiously waiting for Spring I'm so happy it will be Fall. All our leaves will be dropping to the ground and yours are just still emerging from sleep.
Happy days for both of us!

Gorgeous seeing nature against the cold angles of the building.

Jane said...

Yes it is so exciting isn't it. I can hear the birds in the morning, and our trees are about to come into leaf. And last night felt positively warmish. Am so over this winter. Hope you are well xoxo

simon said...

yes! can you feel it in the air? Amazing shift in the last couple of days.

I noticed the native wildflowers are out along the fire trails, and the birds are gathering material for nests and are displaying. Bring it on! I say!

Beatnheart said...

Beautiful Images weird that your spring is on its way and we’re going into Autumn...It a crazy thought that you are that far away that the whole season thing is different. Time for a visit to Australia!

La Petite Gallery said...

Ann said...

We're back to 90 degree heat over here in the US. Spring sounds really good right now!

Do you get any snow in the winter?


Jennifer Beaudet said...

Hi Julie! I thought I left a comment before but I guess it didn't work. I hope this one works! I'm not the fastest typist around. I bet spring is so beautiful there! I love the way these photos capture that moment before spring. I need to read your other posts now! Jennifer:)

Hanging on to the last bits of summer...I am glad that you have the promise of spring and new life and renewing spirits to look forward to! Wonderful photos!
Take care,

oldgreymare said...

Fall, Winter, Spring...please just anything but Summer. I'm wilted, shriveled, and moisture deprived.

Looking at all these lovely building shots makes me anxious to go see my kids. Maybe I'll post one on my desktop to give me inspiration and motivation to sell more stuff...If anything can, one of your beautiful photos will do it.

BIG hugs my friend


Shaz said...

Great images, looks like NYC except the air appears clean. Love the camera angles, did you get a new lens?
Are you still watching the radio? I am.
Thanks for telling me that I won that book, I had no idea.

Julie, your pictures of the city welcoming Spring has thrilled me today. How beautiful and how talented you are at capturing these images.
I adored your 'did the moon see me' post. What a gift you have for writing. I bless the day I first came to your blog.
Speaking of blessed me with your comment that you left for me. You have warmed my heart...again.
hugs to you...
