yellow roses

This is the first bloom of the Golden Showers rose plant that I bought earlier this year. It is a climbing rose, and has a delicate fragrance.

Purple and Green

Colors illuminate our world.

And spring bring its own special set of hues. And even through May’s temperamental days – some days aglow with the brightest sunlight, some days cloudy grey as though awashed with indecision – one is entertained by glimpses of the colors.

For me, the best ones are the purple blooms of the jacaranda trees and the green parrots that make a bigger appearance in Southern California at this time of the year.

Their squawking signals their presence. I rush out of the back door following the direction of the sounds. Vibrant green with dashes of red and yellow. Seeing them is a gift of constant amazement.

They fly in groups and in pairs, heralding another spring; another time to view their green against the sky.
