There’s not enough orange in February
Tonight I was sorting through photos from our trip to New York last fall and had to pause on this image. After a long winter the sight of a Monarch perched on a bright orange zinnia will do that to you. This one was at the Queens Botanical Garden–a wonderful place. It’s not huge, but it’s a real gardener’s garden. And, apparently, a pollinator’s garden too!
We seem to be missing all kinds of good colours in February. Fortunately, it’s a temporary condition, making spring all the more welcome. Last weekend, I couldn’t help but notice lots more birds around our neighbourhood.
