looking for colour in unexpected places …
The sun came out ~ but it wasn’t warm ~ I had a little potter in the garden, wore thick socks, but my feet were like blocks of ice. When I was young I remember my Mum rubbing my feet to warm them up after walking in the snow ~ it would have been lovely if she were able to do that for me today.
So although there are no flowers in the garden, I looked elsewhere to find a bit of colour.
In the veg garden there are still a few pickings to be had ~ a container of carrots, three different types of kale, chard, a few leeks, purple sprouting broc (not producing yet) lettuce in the greenhouse and stored onions, beetroot and parsnips ~ if the weather does get wintery at least there will be some fresh veg to be had.
So you see winter doesn’t have to be colourless – you just have to look a bit harder.
