perfect colors

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.

  1. It’s a beautiful day! I just walked over to the store, and most of the way there I could smell the blossoms on the trees!
