It's not pretty here, we have absolutely no snow which always pretties things up a bit for a while until it turns into slush. Brown is the predominant color outside and since I am such a COLOR person, winter tends to cause me to go in search of color and signs of life. I grabbed my camera for a quick trip to the back-yard in search of that color that I so yearn for. The sun was shining which in itself means life and because it has been so unusually warm this winter I found leaves clinging to a bush that were still slightly green. Oh does that mean Spring is not far?....HA who am I kidding, this is January 4th, the only way I would feel the warmth of Spring is to move or take an extended vacation like many do at this time of year (scratch that idea, no money in the til for extended vacations). I do remember days in January that were warm enough for a quick swim when I lived in Dallas, TX and by March the trees had blossomed and flowers were in bloom. Hmmmm does sound tempting. But for right now, I will have to be satisfied with walks around the yard, catching glimpses of greens, or reds, or yellows, or blues....anything but brown.
I know I said no brown, but I find these seed heads of the Monarda just down right fascinating. So I cheated and added some brown, actually several shades of brown.
I am hoping your days are filled with color....anything but brown unless it is fascinating.
