Monday Monday . . .

We did get some white this weekend making it a PITA to take outside pictures of the Boy. I would get the proper exposure for him only to have the background flashing like a neon sign. And it was bitterly cold to boot. I will credit him for agreeing to accommodate me with the opportunity and hope he is as amenable once the weather improves. In the meantime, this weed struck me as a glimmer of hope (Spring) rather than a reminder that I have to get my act together this year and truly weed the shrubs surrounding the house. Plus it is the closest thing to "yellow" to submit for this month's color challenge. The only yellow around here this time of year is what you avoid in the snow. And on that note..........


  1. Really like that punch of almost-yellow against all those muted colors. Gorgeous bokeh on this one, Nicki.

  2. That is an awesome shot. I love the little bit of twinkle it has!

  3. Ooh, that's really pretty! The yellow really pops!!

  4. I really like the color/tones in this. No trace of winter (which is nice!).

  5. Love that you found some color in the midst of the cold, gray winter. Love the way the yellow pops out amidst the more muted color surrounding it.

  6. Soooo jealous here!! It's -15C today - no sign of green anywhere! Beautiful shot!
