Color Splash

It had been a perfectly perfect Sunday afternoon at the park.  The kind that reminds you of the Spring that's coming, that you had forgotten even existed, after such a long snowy winter.  As the day neared it's end, another cold front was approaching, and the sky collected clouds.

 Winter's muted brown and gray tones dominated the view, but my attention was quickly drawn to the tiny splashes of color that dotted the property.

Like this early blooming tree, who's pretty pink blossoms were visible from every angle, through the hundreds of other bare branches.

And this yellow "flowerfall" that cascaded down the side of a small hill, like a waterfall of color.

And these cherry red berries that clung to the still half empty bushes that surrounded the playground.

No matter how hard old man Winter tries to maintain his foothold on my world, Spring has gotten her foot in the door.  Nothing can stop this changing of the guard.  It's time to pass the baton.   


  1. Very nice captures. I love the clouds in your first image. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Spring is definitely arriving in our part of the world. Lovely shots.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and interesting that we live in the same town. I don't usually go to Lake Johnson because I'm less than a mile from Shelley Lake and am also not far from Lake Lynn but it's fun sometimes to go to different spots for walks.

  3. What a beautiful day! I long for Spring around here... it keeps teasing us and then allowing the freezing temperatures back in.

  4. I l♥ve the colors & can't wait for Spring to show up around here!

    Happy SWF! =)

  5. Trying to work out where you are.
    Judging by the pink tree and the winter jasmine, I'd say yes.

  6. 'Nothing can stop this changing of the guard' - I love that sentiment.
    Lovely skies and glimpses of spring.

  7. Yes, the emergent colors are brightening the days!

  8. Beautiful captures of Spring ;-)
