Signs of Spring


While out for my daily walk I looked up and there is was, the first sign of Spring. I love the look of the Forsythia plant. Especially when it's next to an adobe wall. Have good day everyone!

Pretty with the adobe background. They are all over the place here! ;-) Yellow, the first real colour of spring.

I've never seen these bushes up against an adobe wall - just beautiful! Usually I see them here, hanging over a wood rail fence. Great perspective and a nice way to start the day! Have a great Thursday in your cubicle, Randy... be sure to see the sky! ;)

wordsmith said...

Thanks, Randy. I always start my day by checking what's new in Santa Fe :) This yellow forsythia you spotted promises a good and sunny day. So optimistic! Enjoy your day, too!

Kathy said...

Forsythia just looks good next to anything, whether it be adobe, pine trees, blue water, etc. She is always dressed in her Sunday finest!

I used to have forsythia in my garden back in England. Perfect call to spring!

clairz said...

What a marvelous beginning to Spring! Back East, our forsythia bloomed against 250-year old clapboards. I'd have to say it looks mighty good against adobe, too!

Excellent! Sun rays are good as well!

Lúcia said...

Spring is my favourite season, don't like to think that I'll have to wait 9 months to see everything coloured again...
Have a good day too!

Sometimes this bush is the very first sign of spring around here too. I like the backdrop for yellow blooms.

Pasé a echar un ratito entre tus cosas y a saludarte.

Un abrazo.

The forsythia looks fab against that adobe! We got snow yesterday so our blossoms are still a little way off.

thanks for your comment! love your pictures!

Winchester Daily Photos said...

Everyone seemed to have a Forsythia tree when I was a kid, now I see them less often, do plants go out of fashion?!

Regina K said...

We have signs of spring in KC also. But snow is in the forecast for this weekend.

Great colors! I think we're all ready for spring!

NYC In Photographs said...

Beautiful colors here! We've gotten some more snow here last night, it really makes me want spring to get here sooner. Want to trade? =)

Tracy said...

Well, now, I think I love it too!

Farmchick said...

It is so encouraging to see those signs of spring after a long winter.

Halcyon said...
