I Await Your Return

This time of year in my part of the world, the weeks of winter seem to drag on. Even when there aren't many snowfalls in Toronto it doesn't help, as the scenery becomes an endless expanse of grey pavement and towers poking at a disinterested sky. It is the return of colour that we crave. Of beauty.

The upside is that when it comes we value it so much more because of the deprivation :) A beautiful colour palette here and great control of depth of field

'I second your emotion', Rick, and very much so, though in my garden the first snowdrops and hellebores are raising their heads ... Otherweise, most days are grey and grey and grey!
Therefore I welcome your colourful reminder of the beauty of the weeks and months to come! What a charming butterfly doing its thing on a beautiful flower ...
(And as Grouser has said already, perfect dof!)
