Nature through the seasons: Spring

“Spring: a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be.” ~Anonymous

Spring has always been one of my favorite seasons. When flowers begin to bloom and I can smell the freshly cut grass in my culdesac – instant serotonin. I took these pictures at the WRAL Azalea Gardens as it is a beautiful location right here in Raleigh. By taking these pictures I hope to have captured as much beauty as possible and show the vibrant colors, variety of flowers and the true beauty of spring. 

As the school year comes to an end and myself and my friends are moving on to the next chapter in our lives, the thought of change can be scary. Change opens up doors to the unknown and while this is nerve-wracking, it can also be beautiful and provide countless opportunities. The blooming flowers tell us that spring has arrived and encourage us to find the bright side in any changing situation.
