A little sunshine on a cold, cloudy day

Tulipa dasystemon on the east side of the house.

There's a gusty wind off the lake this morning, and the forecast suggests we may see snow (!#!##) later today. Maybe a short tour of warm, soothing, joyful yellow in the garden will take the edge off. The color of the sun isn't limited to flowers -- stems, foliage and feathers play a role, too. (Photos were taken on various days during the past week.)

Yellow-twig dogwood underplanted with tiny daffodils and chionodoxa.

Primula elatior (oxlip) in the herb garden.

Varigated lemon thyme in the herb garden. 

Species tulip Professor de Monsseri by the door.

Evening grosbeak in the tree lilac outside the kitchen window. It's one of my favorite birds.
