yellow is the color of spring

the earliest buttercups-


returning orioles

and tanagers



the meadowlark's throat


arrowleaf balsamroot


 sweet smelling bitterbrush


currants


yellow is a favorite color of spring here in the foothills-


that, and some green (look dad! it's true- there is green sometimes)


i'm lucky enough to start my days with a hike with the dogs through this beautiful place, thought i'd share :)


happy weekend-

Your yellow and green scenery (including birds) is so lush! I saw yellow flowering bushes near Grass Valley on our way to Sacramento - wonder if they were current bushes?

What a great place to hike! Love the rolling hills & OPEN SPACE. Space is good!
