…they can make for a rather grey, dismal, and dreary day.

So when this week’s Daily Post photo challenge titled VIBRANT hit my in-box, I was moved to scroll through my many folders for something that would foot the bill…

And on,

 Have an awesome weekend
and an even awesomer winter.
Before we know it,
Spring will be here again
