Colours of February
Here we are, bang in the middle of winter. People in Nova Scotia have more or less had enough of it now, and want to see signs of spring. Not yet awhile I’m afraid. We are miles behind England. So, I’ve been looking for colour, and I found an abundance. First outing was to Queensland Beach. It was cold. Freezing in fact, but I was after some natural colour. I found it in shedloads!
Bright amber lichen
Washed up collection of matching tones
Tiny pebbles make the background for this arrangement
More red, black green and white
Lichen flourishes on Queensland Beach
Seaweed draped over stones like flowing locks
So many coloured varieties of seaweed
Left over berries and snow
Crystal clear water brightens speckled stones
Blue blue water. Yellow yellow seaweed.
More and more of this yellowness.
Another day I go down to Halifax Seaport Market, looking for its’ colours
The Tangled Garden was there, and did not disappoint
Most flowers aren’t ready, but you can always find roses
So expensive were these yellow blooms that each one was wrapped in its own netting
I call this babies breath. So pretty
Sweet tasting colours
Little lemon cakes were asking me to surrender to them. I did not.
Felted bags leaping off the shelf
No reason not to go for it with these colours
For those who crave colours. It’s there if you look for it!
