In the sharp light of spring, I'm seeing things I didn't notice before. Today the bromeliads were shining in the light, their centres red and bright.
They are happily drinking, having caught plenty of rain in their centres.
This one shows the contrast of bright green, with the red new leaves opening in the middle.
And others, like this, have dull red exteriors and lively centres.
I've passed the bromeliads so many times as I walk down the driveway, and they've seemed a bit rough and battered, not really worthy of interest. But today, with the right combination of sun and rain, they were full of life.
I'm feeling that way myself, as my broken wrist gradually strengthens, my writing is surging ahead, and I'm becoming fit once more. Spring is on my side!
