The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Tina.
The theme is Spring. Such as SPRING into the air, as these lasses (and laddie) are doing?
Don’t ask me, or even get me started, on why the Lens-Artist Challenge SPRING is following SUMMER instead of FALL!!! I’m sure the powers that be, they-who-shall-not-be-named, have their REASONS!!!
Go with the flow. No problem. I’m confident my circadian rhythms will continue to function, regardless of this BLATANT attempt to upset the world order.
But I digress.
I travel in the spring, a lot. Too hot in summer, too cold in winter, at least in my northern hemisphere primary habitations.
I was in Scotland during spring when I took the photos of the Scottish dancers.
I climbed green hill Arthur’s Seat, by Edinburgh, that spring:
Speaking of seats, there are seats with views:
This is Scott’s View, where the great Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott (Lady of the Lake, Rob Roy, Ivanhoe) would contemplate. The plaque enlightens:
Spring found me, or rather I found it, in the Keukenhof Gardens, Netherlands, many springs ago:
Hope SPRINGs eternal.
“Hope humbly then; with trembling pinions soar;
Wait the great teacher Death; and God adore!
What future bliss, he gives not thee to know
But gives that hope to be thy blessing now.
Hope springs eternal in the human breast:
Man never is, but always to be blest:
The soul, uneasy and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.”
From…An Essay on Man: Epistle I BY ALEXANDER POPE
