Dreamy layers of blue
in which I could lose myself
A strong breeze had created patterns on the lake
alternating ripples and smoother areas of lighter, shiny blue.
Each yellow Japonica flower radiates sunshine and spring energy
And when we mix blue and yellow
we get those varied shades of green.
Dancing catkins in the wind challenging me to catch a sharp image!
For a real spring mood
take a light blue sky
add a few fluffy wind-blown clouds
and an overhanging bough of fresh young leaves
New leaves unfurling in the warmth of the bright sunshine
against a backdrop of mottled blues and greens
A touch of white flowers whose name eludes me as I write
and a chestnut tree whose generous leaves provide such welcome shade
in the hottest months to come
I couldn't resist this touch of pink
of cherry blossom so sweet
it goes so well with green, don't you think?
It's impossible to have a favourite colour in spring
for as each one appears
it is my favourite in the very moment I see it!
on this first day of May
Let us enjoy
what Nature brings us!
