A Hopeful Display

In my continued quest to find signs of spring and frankly, color other than beige (or snow white…what? More snow?), I find this hopeful and happy display.  Yes, you are seeing a giant orange (naval, I think), banana and carrot.  But if you look deeper you might see a large apple in the backyard (perhaps a Delicious, although I couldn’t get a good look!). Surrounded by this salad was an owl, an eagle on the stoop, two swans, and a goose. There is a joyful overlap of seasons, with winter holiday decor, commingled with Easter eggs, as though the homeowner is unsure by the current weather, just what season we are in. I feel ya!
