Pictures of the Rhubarb Sprouts

 My fascination in seeing these red buds or shoots emerging from the soil each year has me taking “Pictures of the Rhubarb Sprouts” in early spring. And again today, I find myself questioning the word or terminology that I’m using to describe these sprouts or shoots, of new springtime growth of the Rhubarb plant. Taking the pictures of the plants is the easy part. Writing about what I think the pictures are showing you, is the hard part for me to accomplish, as I struggle to find acceptable words to appear on the page. But that is another story altogether as I’m Writing just to Write.

I find it so much easier to see the beauty in nature and different things than to be able to put what I see into words on the page. This being one of the many reasons for my trying to practice writing each day. Although the photographs themselves may sort of tell you their story of breaking ground and emerging from their dormant season. I find myself trying to put into words their story and telling you what I’m thinking about, too.

But like I said before, “I find it so much easier to take a picture of something, than to write about what I’m taking the picture of.” This may be true for a lot of other people too? I really don’t know for sure and I wonder about such things…Here is my new photo album of Rhubarb sprouts in early Spring:  


Maybe I’m the only one that is fascinated by what I see as mystical photos? But I’m just capturing and recording this moment in springtime. I hope that you like the pictures too? Because I don’t want to feel like the only one that sees these rhubarb sprouts as fascinating, but I just had to share them with all of you today!

    THANK YOU for posting the great pictures of the spring emerging rhubarb!!! We just bought a new home and have new plants emerging all over the place; we thought it was rhubarb, but could only find pictures of the mature plant. We have two VERY curious pugs, so it’s good to know what’s in our yard.
    Thanks again-
