I was just outside walking Chantico.
I happened to glance up to see a brilliantly yellow and black butterfly fluttering from a tree, and very suddenly, I became tremendously *aware* of all the vivid colors I was seeing.
The sky is deeper than sky blue; a few random twists of clouds contrast very brightly against it. The buildings here are a red-brown, reflecting sunlight on one side, made rich by shadow on the other. Leaves are still new, fading a little from spring-green, but not yet darkened to summer shades. Dandelions are making small bright spots of yellow, and a lilac tree literally explodes pink blossoms in a shower against fresh grass.
And the butterfly skittered around, bringing it all together.
