Weekly Photo Challenge: Color


We’ve had a long winter, so there is hardly any Spring color around yet.  But the signs are there that in a few days, color will POP!   Already a few daffodils have opened their buds and in four or five days, the hillside will be covered with many shades of yellow.   But, for now, the most colorful sign in my yard is this small garden sign.  A Mother’s Day gift to my mom years ago, this cute little sign recently made its way back to my own garden, where it brings a bit of color and rhyme to the subtle browns and moss greens of the woods .  Soon those colors  will give way to a rainbow burst of other hues.  We were served ramps at our favorite restaurant this evening:  a sure sign that winter has ended!

Soon the garden will be a-buzz!

Soon the garden will be a-buzz!

This is my contribution to this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge:  Color.   Why don’t you join in the fun and leave a link to the Daily Post page (here) for a photo that says “COLOR” to you.  Be sure to check out what others have posted while you’re there.  Here are just a few:

  5. The colourful sign is certainly a contrast to the current brown background.

  8. Lovely sign and it’s nice that it has a family history. My signs aren’t even out of the barn yet because all the snow hasn’t melted and the ground is still frozen.

    • The only reason this is out, is that it had been neglected in my mother’s garden all winter (she recently moved). My sister found it and reminded me that I needed to take it home. It isn’t really “planted” anywhere yet; I just stuck it in the ground so that I didn’t forget about it once the weather starts acting like Spring around here & I begin to get things in shape!
