Spring is Here!

(Click on the thumbnail for the bigger, better version)

Attention Readers: We interrupt our regular programming to bring you this bulletin. Anita’s first Bear Valley Springs daffodil bloomed March 20. There may be setbacks, but one can't help thinking that this is an encouraging sign.

We now return you to the broadcast of "Chasing Sunshine", part of the Death Valley Days series. That broadcast will resume after a brief pause.


  1. Anita, I can only imagine the joy of finally getting your first spring flowers, you've spoken of it for a while.

    Congratulations on the blessed event and beautiful capture of the moment.

    After the posted announcement I believe this photo would be considered as photojournalism. ~smile~

  2. Congratulations! The first day of day of spring it started off nice here but by day’s end it turned to rain! At least we are headed in the right direction.

  3. Earl - Indeed there was a grand celebration here. So much so that we are already talking about buying another bag of daffodil bulbs to plant for next Spring. I'm glad you like the photo. Thanks.

    Whoopie! I've entered the field of photojournalism. Sort of entered the wrong door by mistake, but what the heck.

  4. Steve - We had a gorgeous day yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it; but, we aren't kidding ourselves that we are at the end of cold weather. We will have a few more spells of "winter weather". Even so, I am fortified now and can deal with them—even manage a smile in spite of the setbacks.

  5. A photograph very purified and of good composition, the tonality perfect thus is successful, cheer!

  6. Isn't it amazing how that vibrant bit of yellow can chase away those winter blues? Congratulations and may winter be chased away to the southern hemisphere, not to be seen again for another 9 months!

  7. foto-rolero54 - Welcome and thank you for your comment.

  8. Paul - It's interesting to me that, early in life, yellow didn't have such a profound effect on me. Yet, in the last several years, it has become the most cheerful of all colors to me. Yes, it's perfect, in so many ways, to chase away the blues.
