Spring Yellows . . .

The brightest Spring color in my northwoods this week has to be yellow.  The yellow of catkins (flowers of some trees/bushes), goldfinches and marsh marigolds stand out surrounded by the new greens of Spring.  The air is sugary sweet with everything leafing out and blossoming at the same time.

A little bit late this year, but still to come … I am looking forward to more yellows with the yellow lady slippers and bellwort flowers.

  1. Wow, the tree full of goldfinches is spectacular!

    • I have an over abundance of them this year. The other trees had just as many and the ground under the feeders is also very yellow with finches most of the day. An unaware observer may think I am raising them 😉
      I love their song .. they have added a lot of life to my yard.

  2. Love these, especially the goldfinches. I know it’s been two weeks since you posted this, but it’s still strange to be seeing signs of spring when we’re well into summer here on the Eastern Shore.

    • Summer is peeking in this week. Still waiting for so many Spring things … like lady slippers, baby geese, wild roses and my first fawn sighting. I miss the goldfinches. Last week they just disappeared from my yard … and everyone else has said the same thing. I wonder where they went. Busy with nests and babies? Switched to bugs? .. decided to go further north? Hope they come back soon.
