The first sighting this year of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, on a not-bad day for March, was a cheerful event.
Cheerful . . . colour.
During an exceptionally lengthy spell of chilly, cloudy, drizzly March-like weather in early May, continuing to feed the birds provides a welcome and cheerful spot of physical, emotional, psychological colour.
A sunflower is such a cheerful thing. This one is in the front yard.
For us, the first half of May has been significantly colder than the historical norm, which has slowed down springs’ arrival. Then we had a month’s worth of rain in five days. As of Tuesday spring finally seems to be here to stay, which means that our redbud tree is bursting with colour!
On April 15, snowflakes (called Christmas flakes because they were large and invoked a bit of cheer) nearly obscured the neighbours’ large pine tree.
Brilliance and loveliness
The brilliance and loveliness of a hibiscus bloom brings colour and light to a December day.
This aster?, species unknown, added cheerful colour to my walk through some tall brush.
This flower greets me every morning at work. It inhabits a bed of wildflowers next to one entrance and I made an executive decision when the lawn care team arrived, instructing them to leave the bed untouched. (A co-worker uncharitably calls them weeds.)
These dwarf daffodils add bright and cheery colour to our yard.
Good photo Faye!
