Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is:  Fresh.
Our instructions:  “For this week’s photo challenge, share with us a photo that expresses something fresh.  This topic is particularly wide open to interpretation.”

My mind jumped immediately to Subway: Eat Fresh.  Don’t worry.  I didn’t take picture of a sandwich.  😉

My next thought for this theme was to drive out to one of the local vineyards and take some photos of the grapevines at bud break.  Because what’s fresher than a hopeful little grape bud?

And then I remembered . . . it’s March.

March is my least favorite month of the year.  March is seasonal purgatory — it’s not really winter, and it’s not really spring.  It’s just cold, dreary, and brown (at least here in Virginia, anyway).  There isn’t a bud breaking anywhere.  Sigh.

C’mon, Mother Nature.  Give me something.  One tiny, fresh, harbinger of spring.  I was just about to give up (and go take a picture of a sandwich) when I spotted it — a little March-defying fern, sunbathing in the woods.  Spring is springing!

Now . . . go away, March!  And don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Salud!
