Really rebirth.

Spring. Rebirth. Renewal.

We aren’t used to very much cold weather. This year we had some very cold weather, with temperatures in the low teens. That cold spell killed everything especially our semi tropical plants which are not used to freezing weather. Dead and brown ferns are pretty ugly, so we cut them down to the ground. Nobody dug them up. It was either because we were too lazy or knew that they might likely rebound. I choose the former. We are very lazy.

Sure enough.

Nature did her thing. While this little patch of ferns isn’t as full as it was, it’s coming back, Rebirth is here, with bright fresh colors that I like.

And, that’s nature. And spring. A time to repeat a circle of rebirth from a cold, often dead winter. I never fails to amaze me, although I know it well. I just need to be reminded.

The picture. I saw it. I photographed it. I tinkered with it in post production. But, not in the way you think. The new ferns were looking way too neon, so I tuned them back. A little. One thing to take away. If you see the light that you like from one angle, that’s the angle from which to make the picture.
