Friday Feature: Gray and Yellow

I have been rereading The Trumpet of the Swan by E. B. White lately. I was struck by his description of the cygnet, a baby swan.

{The swan is waiting for her eggs to hatch.}
Late in the afternoon, the swan was rewarded for her patience. She gazed down, and there, pushing her feathers aside, came a tiny head — the first baby, the first cygnet. It was soft and downy. Unlike its parents, it was gray. Its feet and legs were the color of mustard. Its eyes were bright. … It was glad to breathe the air, after being cooped up so long inside an egg.

I was inspired by this passage to create a treasury in the colors of the cygnet.
