Coming up Green

Coming up green

A most delicious month of young things growing, of brilliant greenery and dazzling flowers.
Enid Blyton's Book of the Year by Enid Blyton

When I was young, my favourite book was Enid Blyton's Book of the Year.  It's written a little bit like a magazine with stories, mottoes, poems, puzzles, plays and songs.  Many an evening was spent poring over the pages by the light of the landing light, my heart jumping for joy if I stumbled across a morsel I hadn't read before or that had (shockingly!) been forgotten.

Perhaps even then - or especially then - I intuitively understood the importance of the rhythm of the seasons and maybe that's why the spring always leads me back to it's familiar pages.

Linking up with April prompts at Writealm.


  1. Oh, I love this image - the subtle black, cream and rich browns - with that single point of bright, spring green! You have definitely captured the essence of spring's beginnings. Great POV as well - your trademark "from above" - it gives the sense of peering into a mysterious secret.

  2. love the photograph but that book sounds amazing, must see if i can track down a copy!

  3. The thing that appeals to me about spring is the idea of a fresh start. I like the one you've made with this new writing meme. You do an amazing job of combining word and image.

  4. I'm enjoying your posts for Writealm...I checked out the website and I might consider this at a later date.

  5. I love stopping by and reading you daily writings! You have such a wonderful way with words and photography!
