The colours of winter

Leaves under the Rhody, keeping her feet warm

Dry leaves of all sorts.

On a cold, grey day , the subtle colours of winter are comforting. Everything is gentle, quiet and monochromatic.

I will keep the camera handy so I can capture some more of this sombre palette until the green starts creeping through. In fact, when the light is better, I must post pictures of  the little surprise at our front door! Maybe tomorrow.

  1. There's a lot more blue in the photos than I would have thought. I always think of winter as a sludgy brown, heading towards grey-ish black.
