Colors of the Season



January can be a bit dreary. The holidays are over and the weather can be a bit undesirable. But, there is beauty to be found everywhere.

A bit of brown can be found all over the farmette. 




A dash of fading white peeking out from the fence row.  



What would January be without a bit of beige?  





A splash of red hanging on for dear life in the vines.  



And, last but not least......




a single green leaf waiting for spring.

  10. Thanks for the reminder that at this time of year, we have to look for the color. It has been so dark and dreary here!! No rain, just damp and dreary.

  12. lovely!

    I saw on another blog that winter is the sepia month....void of color and waiting for spring. But the snow does make the bits of color stand out a bit more. I still like it, anyway.

  27. Hi Michelle, You have seen enough of John's Island to know that we share this fascination with the photos that pick up the interesting details that are so often missed in the the big overview scenes. This is one of the things I really like about "It's a Small Town Life." Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing with us. John

  28. I saw a bunch of red chinaberries out the church window yesterday and it made me smile. I seek color in this dull and dreary winter season!

  29. I'm one of the oddballs who likes winter. I like being able to see the skeletons of the trees and bushes, to find sudden unexpected views open up where greenery once hid them, and I like to feel the peace of sleeping earth. Green will come soon enough, and with it the surge of activity outside. For now, I am content to be quiet in the house.

  30. Great pictures. That's a lot more color than we have here. It's just white, white, white. But we have seed catalogs and dreams to keep us happy.
