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!

Another day I go down to Halifax Seaport Market, looking for its’ colours

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

  1. The Tangled Garden is at the market ? Oh how I love their rose/lemon ice cream.
    That yellow lichen is almost neon.

  2. It looks like you found lots of wonderful color, Lynne.
    A much appreciated bright spot today, when once again, it is very cold and gray here.
    Thank you!
