My photography passion explodes in the spring. Since I'm a nature photographer, I fall in love with springtime every year as the wonder of plants and flowers emerges. As I live in a cold, northern climate, I must endure the long winters. Typical winter here in Wisconsin lasts from November thru March. We get snow in March, and sometimes even in April here in the north woods.

I also like to keep photos of floral plants for painting, as one of my art hobbies is watercolor painting. What ever your particular medium in art is, I hope this spring you will feel revived and learn to look at these delicate sculptures produced by Mother Nature for a short time in a different light. The art gallery is open every spring, and guess what,
It's FREE Admission:
Just go to the nearest city park or woodland trail, and you'll find a spectacular art show in full bloom.

If you are lucky enough to live near a public garden or floral preserve, you'll find plenty of inspiration for art work, or just a feast for the eyes on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

And once more, here is a lovely example of Mother Nature's delicate artwork, handpicked and placed in a simple glass of water: Bleeding Hearts in a Glass.
