Plum Blossoms 4/1/14

Flashback Sunday, April 1, 2012 – This female sparrow looks really dry and fluffy despite the fact that it is raining and this is my pick photo of the day for April 1st. I love this picture because of the fresh green leaves just emerging from the aspen, the feel I get from this sparrow, and the veiling of the blurry juniper in the foreground. I just feel nice when I look at it.

The plum is happiest when it blooms as itself in full glory. How much of the color and wonder of life would be lost if it weren’t for our differences.”
