Our collective effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus by staying home has given everyone a very different view of spring this year. We asked our readers to share their photos of springtime flowers and other wonders of nature near their homes that have brought them joy during the pandemic. 

Enjoy the community photo contest submissions we received spotlighting spring in San Antonio, including the photo readers chose as their favorite and the Rivard Report’s staff selection.
