These Are Our Colors
Here are the colors of spring in upstate New York. I bring these to you lying down, as I've re-injured my back. So I am going to take it easy for the next several days. I skipped my exercise/photography walk tonight. These photos were taken in the past two or three days, except the redbud.
A dogwood, taken close up, in shades of pink and white with yellow centers.
Rhododendrons bloom at the same time as dogwoods. Here, they show off in red and pink on the West Side of Binghamton.
Here, purple as in a weeping redbud (a couple of weeks ago) in majestic purple.
Creeping phlox in purple, white and lavender.
Little lantern columbine in red.
A purple rhododendron.
And, an orange begonia I bought for a hanging basket.
