We’re coming to the end of the first week of my seasonal Instagram hashtag challenge, #myodetospring, so I thought I would share a wee update. You can read more about my reasons behind the tag, and see the first six prompts here if you’d like to join in – please do! As the days are getting longer it’s reinvigorated my creativity, faffing with flat lays now that it’s light when I get home and searching for signs of Spring wherever I go. My favourite shot so far has to be the cherry blossom pictured above, which I snapped at the Botanics last weekend. My picture barely does its delicate, frothy petals justice – and their fleeting beauty makes them all the sweeter. Here are some of my shots from the past week – you can even see a short video I made for Monday’s birdsong prompt here.
Without further ado, the next six letters for this week (Friday to Friday, with Sunday off) are:
G – Grow
H – Hot Cross Buns
I – Into the wild
J – Joy (whatever brings you Springtime joy!)
K – Kitchen time
L – Lambs.
Thanks to the fellow Instagrammers who have joined in and shared their beautiful images using the hashtag already. The gallery is already filled with beautiful blooms and soft colours – a Spring feast for the eyes. Here are some of my faves from the first week; click the image for the direct link to the Instagrammer’s profile, and handles linked below.
Thank you, and to everyone else who has taken part!
