Adding Color to the Story

A torrentail rain fell last nigh around 3 AM.  That is cause enough for celebration around here.  The new pine seedlings and all the other trees we've recently planted are so much the better because of it.  Yet, in this morning's light was another cause for celebration.  It is so good to get to see the American Goldfinches in full regalia.  Often in the Lost Pines area we only see them in winter drab.  This year is proving exceptional.

Also, it would seem time for Pine Siskins to be moving on, but they linger.  So, the cousins are captured together in this photograph.

Not a bad way to begin the spring.
