Still Life Color



The month of March is the in-between month when the snow that covered the monotonous brown of Winter has gone and the green of Spring has only appeared in the stems and leaves of the soon-to-be blossoming daffodils.  I don't know about you, but I'm usually starved for color by this time of the year.  In the meantime, enjoy this feast of color from my Photo Library. . . .

  1. As one that loves color thank you for the rainbow of photos, Cathy. Spring can't come too soon for me.

  2. I love the colors of Spring, and seeing them here is as close as a Minnesota Girl will get to them until May or June. The piles of snow in our yard and the three feet of ice on our lakes until then, surely test our faith in the unseen. We are tested all the time regarding spring and even lay bets on when the car will go through ice in Eveleth , Minnesota. Thank you for posting this glorious riot of colors.. reminding me that surely ,spring , though not here for months, isthere beneath the whiteness of our world . and we shall rejoice when the first crocus appears in June..
    .. To those of you who have spring now, we are jealous and will celebrate with this page and ou now... after one of the hardest winters ever since I moved here in 1962.

  3. Wow, what a wonderful array of colour. I had to scroll up and down a few times to appreciate the abundance of bright colours, stunning.

    1. I know! It IS an abundance of color--something to inoculate the winter blahs with!

  4. Thank you, thank you! I love color and what a great idea for this post--a delight to the eyes. Spring has come here already but the weather seems to have mixed it all up, and I think we may have one "show" at a time rather than all at once. The daffodils have been wonderful--I guess the deer are not interested in them, but they have eaten down to a stub all the promising tulips and tiger lilies.

    1. I love the different shades of green as Spring arrives. The deer will hop the fence we have in the front yard to keep Gabriel in and eat my tulips! I didn't know they ate tiger lilies. That explains why I don't have very many anymore.

  5. Great post, Cathy. Color is all around us if we take the time to see.
    I don't think deer eat daffodils. But I know they eat daylilies and I saw the little shots today. I hope to get some spray down soon - and on the hydrangeas too!

    1. Hi Elaine. Wasn't today gorgeous! I spent the entire day outside raking leaves out of my periwinkle beds and other areas. Thankfully, the deer have left my daffodils alone. I have them all over the yard--the squirrels have helped spread them and they've multiplied like crazy. I have a few with buds forming on the stem--won't be long now. They haven't bothered my hydrangeas. I have two they have easy access to and I've never noticed missing blossoms.

  6. Ah Cathy - this was certainly eye candy to my eye. Like you I am starved for colors other than browns and grays. Won't be glad when the flowers start to bloom and spring comes this week?? Have a lovely day and thank you for such an uplifting post. Hugs!

    1. April will probably be the soonest we begin to see color in our part of Maryland. I'm keeping busy tidying cupboards and drawers in the meantime. Hugs to you, too!

  7. What a post!! I can safely say I'm no longer starved for color - but like you I always AM in March. Gray and brown and yucky dirty white snow get old very quickly. These photos are gorgeous. What kind of camera do you use, Cathy. Because your photos are always bright, sharp & clear. I think you're either a naturally-talented photographer or you learned your lessons well. Maybe both! I remember a lot of these from earlier posts - especially the ones in the yarn shop. That was a trip you & Ken made to somewhere in New England, right? I remember a wagonful of toddlers having some outside time from daycare too, I think. Very cute. Well thanks for the much-needed & appreciated booster shot of color. Twas like getting a blast of Springtime vitamins! Peace. 🌷

    1. The yarn photos were taken in Harrisville, NH. That whole village was a photographer's dream come true!. Most of these photos were taken with an older single lens reflex camera. I actually think they are better than my photos from the camera I use now, an Olympus SLR. The camera I have now is smaller though and can fit in my purse.
