On a gray, cold day, nothing beats a healthy dose of color. Here are five + 3 shots of multi-colors from recent years.
If your day needed cheering, I hope this helped. Which one do you like best?

Millie’s Happy Day. It’s almost as if she is tentatively answering the wave
Derrick, I’m glad you caught that! Milly can get me to stop seeing the big world and focus instead the simple, random things. Looking through her eyes teaches me a lot.

A nice burst of colour indeed, Cindy.
I have to go with the wonderful cactus flowers, as I would never see their like over here.
Best wishes as always, Pete.
That wild one is almost as tall as I am! When they blossom, it feels like you’re privy to a private treat.
Hi Rick, okay! Sunrises and sunsets happen every day, I know, but I can’t get over how brilliant they are in the big sky of Arizona.That 10 minute explosion in the sky instantly cheers me.
Hard to choose, but balloon and rainbow if I had to 🙂
Thanks, Fraggle. The rainbow is my personal favorite. A spring afternoon rainstorm.
I’ts been dull and grey today in England so your colourful photographs are more than welcome.
Millie’s Happy Day.is my favourite of this selection. The innocence and wonder of childhood perfectly captured.
A small plastic representation of comfort and friendship that brought joy. Thanks, Paul.
They are all great …
… but I get a yearn to return to the desert.
I hope you will get a chance. You should try the Mogollon Rim. I bet you would like it in Eastern AZ.
Beautiful photos! I like the one with the cacti blossoming, and the other one with the rainbow 🙂
Hi Paul, thanks for the kind words. That peachy color is unique on the cacti. I like it, too. That rainbow shot, the end feels like an arm’s length away.
Cacti have such wonderful colors, each is so distinctive. Beautiful rainbow, you’re right, it looks so close you could almost touch it 🙂
Storms on the way here in Southern California, so thanks for sharing some bright shiny colors!
My pleasure, John.
It’s the rainbow for me!
Welcome, John. I see the pot of gold right behind that bush….
Thanks, Cindy for bringing some warmth to me today. About the coldest day we’ve had since Feb.. Love them all but Millie and Elmo is my favorite. She sure is a cutie.
Thanks, Don. I’m sorry it’s so bitter up there. My family in Illinois are enduring the arctic blast, too. Milly has a colorful personality that out-cheers any picture I could take.
They’re all so great. The cactus in bloom is my favorite.
Welcome back, Honkinggoose. The peach colored ones are rarer than the usual red. I love the contrast between prickles and ruffles.
I like your 5 SHOTS series. The birthday cake mixed media (?) photo is really interesting. My 2 favourite are Sherbet Sky and the Greece Bar. 🙂
Hi Dan, thank you for your comment!
The cactus flower pic is my favourite.
Thanks, Ian! It’s bizarre and contradictory. The prickles are super sharp but surrounded by beautiful blossoms. Their textures are a photographer’s friend.
Awesome photos!! LOVE the balloon ride and Milly’s Happy Day. Great stuff Cindy!
I love Milly’s happy day and the Easter Eggs are beautiful!
It is a lot of fun being a grandma. Primary colors, big bolts of colors have reintroduced themselves into my life. Thank you!
Geez that’s a tough race. Milly’s Happy Day, Sherbert Sky and Brettos Bar. Well I always give it to sunsets so I guess it comes down to whether I’d eat that birthday cake or take a drink from that bar? Congratulations Milly, your cake won. 🙂 Who made that work of art by the way? Looks like old school birthday cake butter icing.
It’s just a store-bought one. She like most all 2 year olds loved Elmo. Now at 4 she’s all about Frozen. She marches around and freezes everything wearing her cape and pretending she’s Elsa. She’s a hoot.
That’s adorable. The cake looks good and her parents must love Let it Go. How many times have they heard it?
