Yellow, yellow, Yellow -

                      I'd never seen forsythia looking like this -

                       A gorgeous new shape, forsythia reimagined...

                                                    laced with twine,

                                                   woven this way, that way,
                                                   binding the branches together.

Standing in the paths, the best modernist sculptures
                                                              Could not beat this.
                     What a glory of yellow -  - -


To be that close.

Interpreting March with Painted Landscapes -

      It seems we've all been hemmed in by winter this year -
We look out, but everything is gray gray gray

     The only colors the painted promise of crops in the community garden... 

              And the fantasy of an Italian Spring painted on the side of a bicycle shop -
       A leftover crusty snowdrift forming a faux mountain in the front...
                                                                                          For a country chalet to sit on.
                               The last squall was March 31st, an impressive wet snow -
                                        the tv weather map more colorful than the landscape!

                                                   I think they were craving Spring, too.

                   Participating in Our World Tuesday and Skywatch Friday fantastic ways to travel round the globe.
