Spring snow

Cyanistes caeruleus blue tit cinciarella
The snow is back. Wet, sticky, stubborn spring snow and freezing temperatures that scorch buds and bring the birds back to the window sill hungry for sunflower seeds and peanuts. My mood is as sullen as the snow and if I only knew where the colours had gone, I’d be off following them to who knows where, anything to escape the relentless anti-colour of the snow.
