The light was so extraordinary this morning for a few brief moments that I grabbed the camera and snapped some shots from my bedroom window (where my desk and computer are located). The sky was dark and brooding to the east…and yet illuminated the first green-gold foliage of a stand of poplars to the south.
The neighbours’ yard also displayed that first chartreuse green of spring, as well as a handsome forsythia in full bloom.
Dandelions and a rather scraggly forsythia competed for yellow showmanship at the edge of the apartment property.
On the balcony, geraniums — just potted — are doing well and showing hints of the color to come. This pot contains salmon, magenta, and flame red plants.
Since I took the bird feeder down, this poor neglected rose bush — the finches’ favorite perch — has lost those brilliant splashes of lemon yellow feathers, but has set forth lovely, green leaves.
That was my view from a window early this morning, shot through [somewhat dirty] glass — what did your morning vista look like?
