I love the colors of spring

I love the late spring when the wildflowers present themselves when we least expect it. On Thursday, I drove out to the Joint Base in Tacoma to take Cooper in for a veterinary appointment. I have not been on that base in several years. I turned down one of the roads and there were fields of beautiful orange colors, with a smattering of yellow and lavender purple colors. It was safe for me to stop on this road and I took several photographs. The colors just made me so happy. I especially like this photograph, giving a surprise when I was looking at them last night. If you look very carefully, you will see a big bumblebee at one of the poppies. it, too, made me smile. Photo is my own.

Those orange poppies are beautiful, we have fields of red poppies right now, I love them. I can see the bumble bee, they are nice little animals that I respect. I took a picture of a bumble bee on my sage flowers. It's a bit out of focus, but I took the photo from my window, not the best.

I love bumblebees. I didn't used to, because I thought I'll be stung me. LOL

@TheSojourner If you leave them alone, they do not sting, the wasps do.

@LadyDuck wasps can be very aggressive.

Spring is my favourite time of the year especially when you see forests & woodlands carpeted with bluebells.

@TheSojourner I understand sister! In a week we went from constant thunderstorms and 2 to 3 inches of rain daily to this weekend 106 or 110 with the heat index and our temperatures are mid 90s

A gorgeous photo! Spring is a colorful season in Hong Kong, except it's a bit misty sometimes.

Yes, it is gray here where I'm at. But the other morning, there was a bit of sunshine and I just thought it was a perfect time to take that photo. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Thank you. When it’s Misty, is it also cloudy and gloomy?

You could have the photo enlarged and made into a poster which you can put on the wall. It will always lift your spirits.

One of the things that you can do to experience it on some level, is to do a search of springtime flowers. You will be able to see photographs from around the world. I know it's not the same, but at least it gives you some sense. I love seeing photographs of your country, because there's so much beauty in the whole world with all of the different terrain and climate and Flora and fauna.

Ohhh, I think I see the bumblebee in the center ! Pretty spring colors to enjoy! Nature is the best designer. I think our field colors are at their tail end as it's gotten hot (well, been too warm for a long time).

They grow up here as weeds, but they will be short-lived.
