“Basswood Emerging” – Stouffville Reservoir

“Basswood Emerging” - Stouffville Reservoir

“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.”
― John Lubbock

The wonder of spring, as the forest explodes in greens and yellows, never fails to impress me. Tiny buds burst open and within days, full sized leaves adorn the branch. What I like most is how pure and unblemished these new leaves are. They glow with health, but only for a few days and the cycle towards the inevitable winter begins again.

So, I drink it in while it lasts and I save these moments, in photographs, to enjoy at times when I need to be reminded that the cycle will repeat.
