Today is Easter Sunday, and here on Whidbey Island we were blessed with beautiful blue skies, soft warm breezes, and lots of birds visiting the yard. I went out early to take some pictures of the floral offerings gracing our yard. My favorite of the bunch is the brilliant red rhododendron in our front yard, that always seems to bloom earlier than any of the others, and today some of the buds have burst forth. I love the juxtaposition of the fluffy, soft blooms and the hard, waxy leaves. Even the colors are opposite one another on the color wheel – a true study in contrasts. I see some red and green art in my future. Meanwhile, enjoy the flowers, and be well, my little chickadees!
