I love spring and all of the newly emerging colors. This year I am focusing a post on each color. I started with green last month and promptly got sidelined with a nasty virus which took the air completely out of my sails. This month I will resume and hope to keep up with the changes.
I love yellow! Next to green, it is my favorite color. I especially love when the yellow begins to appear in the spring. A few weeks ago I began to notice patches of yellow beginning to appear on the 30-40 Goldfinches who frequent our feeders. This year, since my feeders are closer to the window, I was able to see subtle changes in color between the various birds.. It has been fun to watch as they slowly change from winter to summer color.
.The daffodils started blooming too…first the miniature ones and then the larger ones of various shades
Among the first flowers to bloom are Colt’s Foot…my kids always called them Ditch Daisies because they always appear in the ditches along our dirt road. This year we even had a few yellow crocuses.
Along the road, our neighbors have forsythia bushes…they are especially pretty this year since we had such a mild winter. I keep forgetting to take my camera along on our walks to get a photo.
Finally…everyone’s favorite sign of spring…Chicks!! Ours arrived on Good Friday and the weather this past week and a half has been freezing…so they spent one chilly night in the coop and are now hanging out in our garage waiting for the warmer temperatures to return.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s color…stayed tuned for the next color change.
