A Yellow Day (Plus)

Celandine poppies first opened yesterday, and are all open today!
The marsh marigolds opened fully sometime this week...
Yellow maple flowers and yellow willow flowers give many trees a spring-green appearance.
Wild ginger's hidden burgundy flowers bloom among the leaf litter.
If this is any indication, my evil plot to have jewelweeds take over my side yard is working!

The most phenologically significant bird sighting I've had is baby goslings. I saw the brown and yellow fluff balls from the driver's seat of the car, however, so I didn't get a photo. But the egret was so close yesterday, I took its picture; and the tree swallow so shimmery in the sun...
