Archive photo of the day: Signs of Spring

It's a measure of how much later spring is this year that our red-flowering currants on March 30th aren't anywhere near as fully in bloom as they were on March 25th when I took this photo last year. And last year was considered a late spring, too! But then this March has seen above-average rainfall AND snowfall, even at low elevations, and, again unlike this photo, almost no sunny days at all.

I love the backlighting and background bokeh in this photo. It really captures one of the things I love most about spring: the beautiful light that comes with it. I'm looking forward to the arrival of that beautiful light, someday, this year!
