Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge – Spring #Green

As we don’t have much green happening here in central Maryland, I am going to cheat and offer up some early offerings of Spring blossoms. I hope this is acceptable.

I have no idea what these little blue flowers are called but they just recently popped up in great plentitude. Below please see them a little closer.

When the forsythias bloom, it’s a sure sign that Spring has sprung.

I’m called Little Buttercup, dear Little Buttercup,
Though I could never tell why.
But still I’m called Buttercup, Poor Little Buttercup,
Sweet Little Buttercup, I!

I’ve snuff and tobaccy, and excellent jacky,
I’ve scissors, and watches, and knives;
I’ve ribbons and laces to set off the faces
Of pretty young sweethearts and wives

I’ve treacle and toffee, I’ve tea and I’ve coffee,
Soft tommy and succulent chops;
I’ve chickens and conies, and pretty polonies,
And excellent peppermint drops.
–Gilbert & Sullivan, HMS Penafore

There’s an absolute riot of daffodils and jonquils all over Annapolis!

      1. I had some blue ones, too. If you don’t mind me practicing on you, I’ll send you a picture of a blue one in a comment box.

      2. Seriously! Wow! So here is how you do it. Get the url where the picture is stored on your post, take off the s in HTTPS. and make sure you don’t have anything following the .jpg, or png at the end. That’s it! 🙂

      3. You can thank Hugh Roberts. He wrote a post about it. I’ve just been putting off trying it. You were my guinea pig, so thank you!!!

      4. I’d love your email, but now we don’t need it for pictures. If you want to do an interview with me about posting in challenges, I’d love to have your email.
