Oklahoma doesn’t exactly burst into color in the Spring; one has to look for it. Tiny flowers suddenly appear out in the pasture, peeking up from between the long stalks of dead brown grass and out of spots of dry, cracked mud. The blossoms of wild plum and redbuds appear as white and pink haze amongst gray tree trunks in the woods. First the pears blossom, then cherry, then apple. Daffodils and grape hyacinth crowd around cement paths and mark the spot where an old farm house once stood. I welcome each and every one of those tiny spots of color, those wee messengers of the green and warmth and sunshine that are on the way. All of these photos were taken with my iPhone using the 10x macro lens from Olloclip. (For the full review of Olloclip and other fun smartphone photog accessories and apps, click here.)
