A chilly morning. No sunshine and the weatherman says none for a week. But winter provides its own charm and beauty. A walk about the ponds at the park provide many interesting things to see. There's a beaver trail and fresh chew marks on the beavers chosen tree. A great blue heron flies away because he doesn't like being disturbed. And a pheasant creates lots of noise as Lucy, the dog, flushes it out of the woods. A robin looks puffed up in a tree as he tries to keep warm while a blackbird sings its unique song as we walk by. There's ice on the some parts of the pond and ducks in another. Dried grasses and weeds, rushes, and twigs. There's not much color but monochromatic has an interest all its own. Isn't it fun to find objects of interest all around, even on a winter day?
Ours is very white so we're seeing the huge contrasts. I do love the story that a mosaic tells. I could happily create an entire room using this color palette, if I could have some red...was that robin's breast red?ReplyDelete
I always remind myself that winters monochrome is the prelude to a burst of spring color. There certainly is beauty in the stillness of winter.ReplyDelete
Hi La Tea Dah....Your post makes me want to go out and walk! Lovely. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a nice Saturday. SusanReplyDelete
A walk on any day is a good thing. No sunshine on your side of the mountains? I'm headed out for a walk this morning...the first in Washington after a very long time.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend...
Ah, we have blue skies and sunshine for a few days! Time for a morning walk. Better hurry before morning is over!ReplyDelete
Such a winter walk with you! Thanks for sharing. It has been so sunny, but windy here in OR...seems like SPRING is close at hand.ReplyDelete
Lovely walk. I have been thinking how winter has the monochromatic look about it. I would like to go walking and look for sightings of color in the monochromatic world right now. Today I found yellow in my yard and my heart sang with joy.ReplyDelete
Love when the blackbird sings, as it gives it's own sort of color.
