Something Green!

The POTD theme this week is "green" in honor of St. Patrick's Day. I know I haven't been on theme much at all this year but while playing outside today I was thrilled to see some real green on the trees and bushes! Finally! The signs of spring are sprouting! It always reminds me of the hope we have in Christ. That one day all our tears and trials will be washed away and we will be in Heaven with Him! YAY!!!

Some pics of my lilac bush taken with my new Tamron lens at f/2.8 :

I think I'm going to like this lens. It was fully zoomed at 75mm and the background is actually the inside of the bush. Love the bokeh!

And one with a little backlighting drama, the stem against the white, overcast sky:

Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed day!
