Buds burst open, squeezed through twig, branch, and bark. Straining toward a lush green future. Seeking the light and warmth of spring. Copyright ©2016 Terry Boswell
I took this photo one morning last week in my backyard. The sun came out strong after a soaking mix of rain and sleet. Everything was shimmering with light. The conditions were perfect to satisfy Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Bokeh, and the resulting photo works for The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Future, as well. Buds and new growth always speak to me of a promising future.
