Winter Colours

For this weekend’s Weekly Prompt, Sue and GC were asking – what is the colour of a winter’s day? My ideal answer would be blue and white, crisp crunchy frost or soft fluffy snow sparkling against a clear blue sky.

But here in Inverness lately we have been inundated with cold rain and biting winds, so my winter days so far this year have been mainly made up of dark greys and muddy browns. My garden has already been cleared down for the winter but I took my camera outside this morning to see what colours I could find to brighten the day…

And I found I still have purple and yellow chrysanthemums flowering, as well as the red and white flowers of the Hot Lips salvia. The holly is looking a beautifully shiny deep green, and my azalea buds finally losing the last of their autumnal finery are beginning to prepare for next year’s flowers.

So perhaps even in the dullest of grey days I need to remind myself it is always possible to find a bit of colour to brighten your world, as long as you take the time to look for it πŸ™‚

    I think many of us should take note of your last lines… β€˜I need to remind myself it is always possible to find a bit of colour to brighten your world, as long as you take the time to look for it.’ πŸ™‚

    1. Sadly there’s a lot of stressful stuff going on for me just now, and it’s all too easy for me to forget to look beyond my worries and so lose sight of the beauty in the world… πŸ™‚
