In a world of spring pastel blossoms and the bright red/orange/yellow of many tulips this tiny bright blue flower can be overlook, especially when they are in the shade. The sun hit it just so on our mornign walk to make if catch my eye. I’m not sure what it is.
These Arctic Terns are stopping by on their way north for the summer on a very bright spring day. Yesterday’s summer-like weather must have been a shock to them. On Monday I had to go in because the wind was so cold it gave me an earache (even with a good stocking cap on). Yesterday I didn’t even need a coat! Both days were sunny, but the temperature difference was about 30 degrees!
Seeing Becky’s “bright eyes” and raising with a bushy tail. We saw this little fellow on yesterday’s walk. He (or she) posed for long enough that I could fumble my lens cover off.

In Cee’s Flower of the Day post she told about “Pink Day”. I’d never heard of it, but it seems like a really bright idea: a day for standing up to bullies. Here is the Wikipedia description of it:
The International Day of Pink is an international anti-bullying event held annually during the second week of April. The event started when students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw another student, who was wearing a pink shirt, being bullied in their Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia, Canada, and deciding to show support for the student by getting everyone at their school to wear pink the following day.Wikipedia
The initiative inspired youth at Jer’s Vision who founded The International Day of Pink, an effort to support their peers internationally with resources and ways to make their schools safer.
So, in honor of the International Day of Pink, here is a bright pink rhodie, hit by a bright sunbeam.
Even though it is bright and sunny, the north wind is keeping it chilly. These birds don’t seem to mind. They are stopping by on their way north for the summer. They look like they are having fun in the wind.
This little friend hopped out of a bush yesterday morning. Then held very still. We never used to have rabbits here about, but lately they seem to hop out everywhere.
