The Color of Winter


February 22, 2013
Clifton Rd.  Clifton, Ohio


Sleeping, Silent, Sepia


We had school cancelled due to ice this morning and
it was crunchy under my boots when I went out to 
fill the bird feeders.  

I think it was the grey sky that made the
sepia world of winter even more pronounced today!
It's lovely!  I know most don't like winter, but
I enjoy seeing the earth asleep for these months.
It's quiet and restful and makes me feel that way, too!

Just in time for the weekend!
Hope yours is quiet and lovely, too!
(well, mine won't be totally quiet.  Sunday is the
Daytona 500, after all! ha.)

  6. I had a rather quiet day. Did some laundry, went to feed and talk to a friend's dog, and took the road along the lake to Webster and did my shopping today instead of waiting until tomorrow. It's gray here too, but the lake was seafoam green. I didn't take pictures though. I like when the sleeping world is wrapped up in a white blanket. :)

  11. I can see your point, Betsy, though I have to say I live winter in Australia or South Africa (or anywhere down south) a bit more. Just a bit. A huge bit. ;)

  12. I agree with the guy that is blue
    Winter wouldn't make me grumpy at my zoo
    If it was like down south
    Then there would be no snow and one less reason to run my mouth haha
    But still a million more
    So will never shut up at my shore

  13. I too love the changing seasons but I could do with a bit more sunshine cheer. To wake up to a dull day every day day in and day out is a bit saddening.

  14. I enjoy winter too with its stillness. LadyCat and I are having a nice quiet weekend and enjoying our home. We are having meatloaf, baked potatoes and carrots. You need to race in the Dayton 500!!! I plan to sit back and watch as much of the Oscars as I can before falling to sleep...
