“If I had my life to live over again, I would ask that not a thing be changed, but that my eyes be opened wider.” – Jules Renard
Rising Up to Brighter Days
Rising Up to Brighter Days in Black and White
(Black and white flowers may not demonstrate the cheer and hope that colorful flowers do, but, I loved this image in black and white. Many, many years ago, black and white would have been the only option to present this image and I believe it would have had the same meaning – Rising Up.)
As today is the first day of Spring I feel myself rising up out of the winter doldrums. The days are getting longer, the sun, when it shines, is shining brighter. I am longing for warmer days and more sunshine. As the tulip in the image is rising up toward the sunlight, my spirits are rising in hope that soon, warmer, brighter days will be here to stay for a while. Let’s all open our eyes wide so that the senses will be reawaken in the days to come – with birds chirping, flowers blooming, grass growing, and children laughing.
I just absolutely love tulips. And I love the way you’ve captured these.
So glad you liked the image Linda. I too love tulips. Have a beautiful day! Blessings, Robyn

Black and white I often find more beautiful but here I find the color recording more successful
Thank you for taking time to comment Art. I always enjoy hearing from you. Blessings, Robyn
…that nothing be changed except my eyes opened wider…
Never heard it stated so clearly, so purely and effectively. Beautiful.
