A Bit of Gold

I found this bit of sunshine-y goodness in the witch hazel tree outside the Orleans Chamber of Commerce as I drove by late this afternoon. It was quite a joy to see, and I do wish now that I'd gotten a long shot of it...

...but no, I jumped right in for the close-up. It was not especially warm out there, as the windiness of yesterday continued. The sun was a little higher in the sky, it seemed, thanks to last night's Springing Forward.

Hope you enjoy it like I did, knowing warmer days are on the way!

Oh that marvelous blue sky behind it really makes it pop, though!

I thought witch hazel was pink-- didn't know it came in yellow as well.

So you get to enjoy a whole new array of local vegetation this year. How cool is that?!

American witch hazel is a joy - even in winter their bright red stems light up the landscape.
