If It's Yellow Maybe It's Spring

This is not a meme I usually participate in but I didn't know a better place for
these lovely harbingers of spring I found last week in my garden.
Now, I don't want to make you feel bad, those of you still dealing with winter snows. In
fact, here in California the rain clouds have returned.
This Meadow Lark just wants to remind us all that spring is just around the corner.
See more of this sunny color at Mellow Yellow Monday.

Oh Wow! That meadowlark is beautiful. He proudly wears his colors, no doubt! The daffodils are beautiful too. I like the cluster!

I'm starting to see daffodils in bloom around here too. What a pretty Meadowlark. Don't think I've ever spied one. Enjoy the rain!

That's the loveliest mellow yellow post I've seen! I don't do that meme much either, but I did some daffodils last month, only they were the supermarket kind. Still,they made me feel so good, as if spring were on its way (we were still in gray Oregon). But now you have the real thing in your own garden And a meadowlark. Wow. How beautiful both pictures are. Thanks for sharing.

When I see daffodils I don't think spring is around the corner but actually here! :) How nice to see the flowers and meadow lark!

Beautiful bird!

Noelle said...

Like you, we do not have snow...just rain which we really need, so I am not complaining :^) The bright yellow of the meadowlark is just beautiful.

That is a magnificent photo of the Meadow Lark! I have never seen one for myself. It is just gorgeous! The jonquils/daffodils are a welcome sight, too. Hopefully your rains will be gentle, so the blooms can stay a good long while.

I posted a daffodil this morning! But I took the picture two years ago. Sigh!
