Daffodils among the red tips on a sunny Saturday afternoon

I suppose I should have also taken a photo of the wall that these carefully trimmed red tip photinias made at the back of a narrow parking lot off SE Hawthorne Blvd., so that you could see how pretty it looked in the bright sunshine. Mainly, though, I concentrated on getting the Buick into the narrow parking spot. It was only after I got out of the car that I saw the daffodils peaking out of the brilliant red leaves in two different spots, so out came the camera.

Hi Lynette, here I am for my weekly visit...
The daffodils look great; spring is definitely in the air... but waking up at 4:00 a.m. doesn't make much sense, even in Spring... ;)
The pictures of Union Station Tower and of the dog at the cherry trees park are absolutely stunning! Finaly, Miss Piggy looks great in the fields... ;))
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, where I’m still strolling around Bilbao. Look forward to reading you back there!
Have a great weekend!

Wonderful colours! Love the pale daffodils against the fiery red.
