It looked like it was brightening up late Sunday afternoon, so Gracie and I headed out to see what spring flowers were popping. Truth be told, we were dodging raindrops much of the time. It was worth it to see all the colorful flowers and buds that were brightening the landscapes. But the blossoms weren’t the only thing bringing color to the spring. Birds are in their bright spring finery too. This male Goldfinch is a perfect example.
