Spring Colours

This morning – with a forecast of rain – another Crazy as a Coot birdwalk (Ocean View Foundation)

But the rain held off, unlike the wind which blew damp and after the winter we have had, felt warm and fresh. All those beautiful muted colours of spring not quite there yet – but promised – and enough birds braving the wind to make a good walk. There was a whole swampful of red-winged blackbirds in glorious technicolour flashes above the green/yellow/brown, but the iphone didn’t catch a good shot.

I hope these photos I did take remind you of the way the trees where you are look at this nearly spring time – just a haze of shade across the tips of the branches, as if the artist had just thrown out his water jar and taken a break before time to return with the full palette to come.
