“A house with daffodils in it is a house lit up, whether or no the sun be shining outside.” – A.A. Milne
Charlie and I spent the afternoon with my parents, tomorrow being my Mom’s 77th birthday. We had a very nice visit and I used the hour-long drive to try to gather some photos for today’s What Colour Is Winter? post. I thought it would be very difficult to find Nature’s YELLOW this time of year, but was pleasantly surprised at how much of the sunny hue I found.
Now, one has to use a little leniency with yellow. Obviously, there is very little “daffodil yellow” in Nature this time of year, so I’ve included some creams, ochres, and orangey-yellows as well. All photos may be clicked to enlarge.
Yellow may not be the most obvious of Nature’s hues to find mid-winter, but they are certainly among the most beautiful. Yellow, too, abounds — if we only look for it.
Tomorrow’s colour: BLUE
