Before all the tiny leaf buds begin, there is colour starting around here. I was out walking and noticed this lovely tree with white bark. Pretty sure it’s a birch, but doesn’t have the classic tall single trunk. ( And yes, I know white isn’t a colour but…)
Much to my son’s consternation, our walk/scooter ride slowed A LOT as I continued to find interesting bits of trunk/stem colour.
Lots of red stems, from this perennial branch, along with the new blackberry shoot!
Not sure what this yellow one is, but there is lots of it.
Oh, just saw the bits of trash at the bottom of the photo! Sad, when I was walking along a road, beside a nature sanctuary. Well sad anywhere.
And of course the most prevalent colour in spring, green.
A week since I took these photos, and there are green buds, blossoms, and leaves starting everywhere. Here in Victoria we get a few sunny days and spring starts with a vengeance. Ooh boy, it’s fun to have spring allergies! At least I only sneeze and itch for about 5 weeks.
Keep noticing colour and detail around you, it can fill your soul. And the lecturer I recently heard speak (Tony Small) reminded us all to get at minimum 20 minutes outside for our brain health.
