a backyard break

i took a moment to walk around my backyard today...

i took the time:

to take in the color

backyard blue

and breathe

backyard almost blue

and really see

backyard yellow

and listen

backyard lavender

and open my eyes to the unexpected*

backyard fruit

and notice the tiny

backyard pink

and drink up the beauty

backyard blushing blue

*does anyone know what this fruit is? we have had this little tree that i thought was a form of forsythia since we moved in. it grows a little out of control so i guess i pruned it a bit too much the first winter and it didn't have any fruit on it until this year. apricots perhaps? sky, i bet you know what it is...and maureen, maybe you know...
