Cup of Spring by aninyosaloh Cup of Spring by aninyosaloh
OMG! Thank you so so much for the DD! :heart:

--------

I wish it were spring
cunningly blowing on the fallen sparks, odds and ends of the old, scattered fire,
and kindling shapely little conflagrations
curious long-legged foals, and wide-eared calves, and naked sparrow-bubs.

I wish that spring
would start the thundering traffic of feet
new feet on the earth, beating with impatience.

I wish it were spring, thundering
delicate, tender spring.
I wish these brittle, frost-lovely flowers of passionate, mysterious corruption
were not yet to come still more from the still-flickering discontent.

Oh, in the spring, the bluebell bows him down for very exuberance,
exulting with secret warm excess,
bowed down with his inner magnificence!

('Craving for Spring' - D. H. Lawrence)

:iconcaedy:
Spring. This image screams the welcoming of the renewal of all things colorful and vibrant in the world. I love the colors so rich and springy. The cup of 'tea' looks so inviting, and the floral decoration makes it all the more wonderful.

Those strawberries look tasty, and remind me of the strawberry festival held this time of year where I am from. They compliment the other items in the image perfectly.

One of my favorite little accents in this image is the slight bokeh that dances near the bottom of the strawberries and on the left side of the cup. It draws your attention to the fresh, plump, virbantly red strawberries just a bit and upward to the edge of the cup and the flowers nestled next to it on the left side.

All in all, very well done!

This is beautiful. I love the dulled tones - it makes me think of a time long-ago, almost forgotten. The strawberries are beautiful - it's nice to see them so fresh and new - like the spring grass just peeking out from the last bits of winter's grasp. Your flowers are brilliant - the effect is breathtaking - leaving me thinking about the baby birds that will be chirruping from lilac bushes, and the spotty fawns that will be running around and then destroying my garden because I have all sorts of tasty treats. It brings back memories of the days I would pick lilacs for my mom and eat strawberries outside....This piece is brilliant.

Lovely. My mind sketches a story of a slightly hazy spring morning--a buoyant, easy solitude in the kitchen of an old farmhouse. Very evocative photography.
