Early Spring Overgrowth

In early spring, even the most well kept yards have an unruly look to them. The plants seem to burst from the ground joyfully. The home depicted below caught my eye as I was doing my morning errands. I had to stop and catch its cool yet dynamic, early spring attitude.

    I like the way you combined the warm and cool colors. It gives a spirit of vitality bursting forth.

    I really like the telephone lines, pole, and street light in your study. It gives the work a real sense of place on the street.
