My little friends have been molting or shedding or whatever you call it when a bird loses its feathers so that it can change colors. I have been watching these gold finches and purple finches swarm my feeders with their greyish winter suits waiting patiently until I can see their glorious colors! And they are here, finally, and I can feel my heart lift everytime I see flashes of bright yellow and red pass my window while I'm working.
Here is the yard with my camilla bush blooming. It reminds me of the rose bush in Alice and Wonderland where the cards are trying to paint the roses red. the colors are so gorgeous I just want to eat the flowers or put them in a big bowl of ice cream.
