The beginning of this specific season is a little stressful for all us because it usually means that we return back to daily routine whatever that is, we may start new efforts, or set new goals in order to achieve our dreams. September always has this explosive mixture of overwhelmed anticipation and inner challenge.
Pablo Neruda had written that one can cut all the flowers, but he cannot keep the spring from coming. For blogging, please allow me to paraphrase it; no matter how many flower pics we add on our blog, we cannot bring the spring earlier.
Spring is officially here after the spring equinox of March 21st. And, spring means one thing: flowers, flowers, and flowers. The previous years, many researchers have shown the power of flowers. Both their sight and smell can change our brain chemistry and make us feel more positive. The fresh-cut flowers around the house make us feel less anxiety, and people had more innovative ideas and solutions to problems when flowers were nearby.
For me, spring means more sun, better mood, and endless shooting of blooms and flowers. No matter how many floral close-ups I have in my portfolio, I always find something new, beautiful and intriguing, to photograph that differs from the others.
Today, I gathered my favorite spring quotes for reflection and more inspiration.
I. “You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
