Gothic Arch Challenge - Vernal Equinox (Spring)

It's here, it's here....at long last Spring has officially arrived. After a very long adn arduous Winter, we are welcoming it with open arms. I love how colour becomes our focus and delight at this time of year. Green sprouts appear in the garden, the grass gradually begins to turn from brown to green and gray skies turn to blue as the earth is warmed by the sunny days. This gothic arch celebrates the colours of Spring and is my entry for the Gothic Arch challenge this week.
