it must be a season thing... as in our bright light I'm craving quiet colour and cool weather xx

What a beautiful burst of blue, and so unlike the gray skies of this winter. Today, morning to noon there was warm sunlight here, but as the day dragged on the gray returned.

London has snow - unusual - mostly grey of sky and buildings, but now that whiteness on rooftops and unassailable places -- and bursts of colour, if you look!

Jennifer said...

Oh! Yes please. A bit of warmth and color would be good.

ronnie, the middles of winter and summer are sometimes challenging.
ms. yes, that photo jumped out of the album and gave such pleasure
margaret, yes, finding color in the snow is a challenge, but it's certainly there
jennifer, even a warm winter is sort of lightless

a daily patina - humming bird feathers.

I am always in two minds about bright colours and toned down hues. A little torture to spice my efforts. But your bright turquoise is absolutely tempting.

I'm in the subtle winter color palette myself. But I think living in a full embrace of everGREEN and ferns and mosses peeking out from under snowdrifts may keep my need for color satisfied. Somehow I get stuck in a seasonal thing....

Are you all better?

Ahhh the turquoise!!! I love "The Anthropology of Turquoise" by Ellen Meloy, Victoria Finlay recommended it -

Fiona Dempster said...

Oh yes please and thank you!

sheepyhollow said...

YES, YES! ...and another resounding YES for color me happy!!! While winter sky & surrounding earth tones are gray, if you scratch beneath the surface you will discover color! Thanks for sharing!
