Showers with a Pop (29/31)

Rain can be an interesting thing when it comes to color. It can make bright colors pop and light colors seem dull. 

It is a wet day here in the Pacific NW but it is stunning at the same time. When I look out my window, I can see the vibrant green of freshly cut grass. It has been dormant for the winter and is finally able to stretch its arms out of the soil and show off its skin. 

The newly bloomed cherry trees show deep cherry hued leaves with soft delicate tufts of bubble gum pink blooms. These two color pop out at you with a dusty blue background. 

The sky has touches of blue but is almost white with a hazy filter across it. The deep greens from the evergreen belt breaks apart the colors and adds a bit of contrast. 

I am tempted to go out and capture them with the camera but the warmth of home and the constant drizzle keeps me inside for now. I'll just admire from the cozy blanket covering my lap. .

  1. There's some nice imagery in this post. I love the "delicate tufts of bubble gum pink blooms." I don't blame you one bit for enjoying the view from inside.
