Tulip Festival Rotorua , Online Exhibition of Spring, What Spring means to me by Janet Keen. All images Copywrite

Spring Moon. Spring to me means new beginnings. Celebration and a time to start new adventures.

Spring Rain. Spring to me means lots of rain and grey skies with a promise of brighter colours. 

Spring means nuances of shades, more light and bursts of energy and explosion of weeds. 

Spring means clear and cloudy nights with the chill of the air still fresh on your breath, with the call of moreporks echoing in the valley.

Spring means a time to revisit your wardrobe, recycle and reuse and  visit shops to buy clothes to co-ordinate with your ensembles that make you feel cheerful and  celebratory.

Spring is a time of spreading your wings and flying to places you want to go and believing in the power of possibility. 
Shaking off raindrops from people or your own thought process that try to with you drown with water.
