forsythia, rain and a giveaway winner!



and the winner is...happily retired girl!  handpicked by the random.org site. so much easier than picking names out of a hat! congratulations girlfriend!
the rain is back, raining down all over this island. supposedly it will stop raining tomorrow. until then, at least the forsythia is starting to bloom, brightening the place up a bit. besides, at least it's not snowing or really cold outside!

No doubt the forsythia is a welcome change from the snow of only a few weeks ago!

Hilda said...

Its golden yellow color is wonderful!

Bibi said...

Look at all that forsythia! Ours is just coming out. I like this photo very much, with the blur that says 'motion'!

Wolynski said...

Love the motion in the shot, yet the trees in the back are hardly blurred.

It'll be beach season before you know it.

Kitty said...

ah, we visited LI this weekend to see Mark's mum but didn't see any forsythia. I'll have to be on the lookout next time!

Buck said...

Our forsythia is still just bare twigs up here; so nice to see it in bloom where you are!

I just adore your flower photos. I wish there was more time in the day to visit. Most days I just post my photo and dash off to work!

Awesome shot--I love the movement in it. I took one today like that, but sadly it sucked :(

WOwza! The forsythia is blooming already?

Jenny said...

I'm not sure how I hopped here but this photo is amazing.

Paz said...

how wonderful the forsythia is in full bloom here. in my neck of the woods, i'm still seeing buds trying to sprout.

Congratulations to Happily Retired Girl! Awesome!
