The Color of Spring



Spring has sprung around these parts, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the thermometer.  Chilly days and nights has us stoking the wood stove, once again. 



While many things are blooming, most of them seem to be yellow in color.  Yellow strikes me as the color of spring.  Not too pale and yet, not too bright. Thought barely visible in this photograph, this old house has a line of Daffodils lining the walkway to the front door.  The Daffs are starting to fade, but I do believe the Forsythia has taken over the springtime display.

"I just want to be warm, yellow light that pours over everyone I love."

  1. I agree . . . it seems yellow is the first prominent color of spring . .
    We are so far away from that here in Michugan!
    Big storm predicted for tomorrow . . .
    So guess what will be prominent then . . .
    WHITE

  3. The flowers is always how you find the front of the house that has disintegrated over time.

  4. I am seeing a little bit of yellow but around here, the pinkish-purple of the redbuds are more prominent...at least until the white dogwoods come into full bloom. Yellow was the color of the day on Saturday though...we drove a couple of hours east toward the coast and a vine blooming with yellow flowers (much like forsythia) was hanging on EVERYTHING on both side of the highway...it was so lovely! Happy Spring!

  7. I clicked on your image for a closer look and was dismayed to see the porch falling in.. then I realized that this poor little house wasn't long for this world. The garden is still trying to make a good show, though. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  15. Forsythia is one of the shrubs I miss by living in sunny Florida. But, there are compensations . . .

  23. Lovely old place. I can just imagine how it looked. It would be a place I would love to live in. Great shot and that flash of yellow is a very pretty addition.

  24. We got crocuses first, then daffodils, then the forsythias, and now the cherry trees and redbud and other flowering trees are going wild.
