The sun has been shining and the snow is rapidly melting.It feels like spring,but I live in Manitoba and we just kind of hold our breath,knowing that we may still get more snow and even storms before this winter bids us farewell.
Be that as it may,I have some sunny yellows to share today.
I have had several years with almost no finches using the Nyjer feeder,but that has changed this winter.The American Goldfinches are busy feeding on most days.
These pictures are not perfect,as they were taken through a dirty window.
I am encouraged by the touches of yellow on these Goldfinches.It tells me that they are slowly shedding their winter coats/colors and putting on the brighter summer ones.
On Valentine's Day I treated myself to a bouquet of bright yellow roses. The main reason for doing this was that I needed something other than snow to take pictures of.
These roses brightened my kitchen for a while and I trust they will brighten your day today.
Once I got the pictures on the computer it was time to experiment with color.
I tried different colors,but liked this one the best. The soft sepia seems to fit with the richness of the roses.
A phrase my Dad used to use when I was having a bad day was,
Your never fully dressed without a smile.
So,put that smile on and enjoy each day.
