Bright colors...wear them proudly...loudly....

Nature sure has a beautiful color scheme...
some are so bright and colorful...
just makes me smile inside and out...

like your very own rainbow...
something is so energizing about seeing bright colors...
seems to open up your brain...

when you are young...bright colors stimulate you...
the brighter the better...who cares if they match...
some where along the line..you try to fit in...
not stand out...your colors tend to be more muted...
you worry that they don't cause to much attention...

when you get older...you go back to the bright colors...
you don't care if they match...you just know they make you happy...
the brighter...the bolder...the better...
hmmm to bad we don't realize during our middle years...
of course some people do...I really appreciate those folks..
that spend their whole lives...enjoying the bright colors...
not letting themself be muted to fit in...
wear your bright colors...decorate with bright colors...
don't let the world around you become muted...
Enjoy every minute of it...
who decided what matches and what doesn't anyway???

What a great message for all of us.
I have always loved bright colors but your right I enjoy them even more now that I am older.
Hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day

You are so right Deb, some bright colors never fail to bring some cheer.
I love the bird pics. We have a family parrot who is over 25 years old, mostly green with a yellow head, but he has some red and blue in his tail.

Happy colors- that's what I like, and these birds are just gorgeous.

The birds are beautiful. I use to be so careful but not anymore. I wear what I like, even if it's Birkenstock to a wedding!

So gorgeous! I love color in nature...I guess that goes without saying :-) These birds are so pretty, and you got some great shots!

I have been having trouble for a week with my computer....not every picture uploads on people's blogs, so I can't see every sot. I apologize if I haven't commented much, but that's why. I keep hoping it stops!
