Photoblog: As We Bloomed

by Adina Cianciotto

A few weeks back, as Spring was emerging from its winter slumber, I took an evening to capture the beauty of Spring’s transition into sun-kissed bursts of foliage, color, warmth, and dew-dropped fragrance.

As students at Northwestern, I believe we often take for granted the abundant flora and wildlife that make our campus so renowned for its captivating beauty. Life is hectic, and seasons always changing, but that’s all the more reason step back and cherish our foundations for life. Spring is here! So join us in celebrating nature in this visual journey through the brambles and blooms of Northwestern!
