Colors 1

This one is kind of cheating because it is not outside. We had a ladies night at church last week and we each were giving a carnation to take home. I was messing around with my macro setting and flash and this is what I got. It is bright and colorful and made me smile.

One of Mandy's pots setting upside down on the porch railing waiting for spring and flowers. One of my favorite colors of green.

Blue, enamal wear bowl on the back porch, again, waiting for spring and flowers.

I know, I was complaining about the grey, but I LOVE this pail. I use it to haul weeds and the girls use it to get water from the river. I feel like it is just peeking out of the snow to say hi.

I got soaked taking this picture. The old trike is sitting right under where the water is melting off the roof. It makes gorgeous icicles. Love the red against the white.

I may regret the photos I chose today come next week, because they are of found objects around our yard that are colorful and in the upcoming days I may not be able to find any other color. The purpose of doing this is to get me looking beyond the snow and slush and such and find color and texture and beauty in what is getting to be a very loooooong winter. I was smiling when I came back in from taking these pictures, so for today, the project has served its purpose. We will see what tomorrow brings.
