Spring is in the air—literally. The intoxicating fragrance of gardenias and the sweet scent of jasmine hang in the humid air causing me to breathe a little slower—a little deeper. Any day now the winged elm in my front yard will debut the first of its tender new leaves. The grand magnolias display their glorious white blooms, fitting of floral royalty. The sun shines brighter and longer to show off this season of rebirth. Mother Nature has thrown off her winter coat to reveal her colorful spring dress. The grass is greener, the flowers are brighter, the sky is a more vivid blue—it’s Earth in HD, and I want to record it all.
