Spring’s Other Color

IMG 8563

 

Spring it taking her sweet time this year, but how sweet it is! Every day when I look out the window my view becomes a little more obstructed. Gone is the bare starkness of rows of leafless trees. Now the trees are wearing fuzzy buds that light up when the rising sun shines through them. Soon our back yard will be enclosed in the green cocoon of summer. It happens every year but I still marvel at the process.

Every blooming thing has its own special season. The cherries are on the wane now (I'm sure you're glad for that!) but the forsythia and daffodils are still going strong. The crabapples and azaleas will be next although I have seen a few azaleas blooming. The lilacs will be right on their heels. 

So in honor of Spring's other predominant color, yellow, and the fact that the forsythia and daffodils will soon be gone, I dedicate this blog post to YELLOW.

Yellow is not my favorite color, but it has had its moments this spring!

Love that yellow against the beautiful blue sky.

Yay for yellow! The forsythia in Jersey always looks so incredible at this time of year. Our is pretty much past already.

next up, in my yard at least = PURPLE!

Maggie, lilacs?? Or?

Lilacs, iris, allium, peony, rhododendron…. I’m sure there are more… I just know that spring for me = yellow, green, purple….
