Eventhough the weather has been dreary during these last few days of March here in Philomont, the color yellow in shades ranging from limey lemon to coronation gold have been emerging in nature to brighten my mood. Daffodils and forsythia are the main culprits who sprinkle the countryside with their cheery freshness, but I can't ignore some of the beautiful willow trees and landscape shrubs that adorn neighbor's yards as well as the roadsides. Even the occasional dandelion is a welcome sight on these cloudy, chilly days. Not far behind yellow, pale pinks and vibrant purples of the cherry trees are beginning to show themselves as well. Can the redbud and dogwood be far behind?
