Welcome March!

Each month, I take photos to show color combinations outdoors where I live, to get inspiration for weaving, knitting, quilting, or whatever you'd like to be inspired to do!

I'm hoping that January and February were the two most difficult months for most of us in this challenge (at least those of us in the northern hemisphere). Both months were cold, often snowy, with a limited color palette here in New Hampshire.

I am inspired to see that some of you are already sharing photos of flowers. The months should get more and more colorful outdoors.

Huge thanks to all of the folks who participated in February. Here are their colors!!

I'll be back, mid-March to kick off the colors of March. With any luck, the snow here will melt, maybe even revealing some early flowers. But really, in March I'll be counting on the rest of you to provide color!! (As you can see from all of these pictures I took today, signs of spring are hard to come by right now....since it's still winter!!)

Annie said...

Yes: your colours still look more like winter, don't they? Here we're happy to see the snow is gone. And the sun was back on March 1! So glad to see it's still there. Beautiful skies, pale blue and white clouds in it. Suddenly colour comes back!

I recognize that white stuff! Bailey sure looks happy to have had the first dunking of 2010. Beautiful colors and glad everything is back up for you.
Down town the trees are blooming, willows are cloaked in that bright spring green and I am sure folks must have early flowers.

What a brave Bailey!!! I'm sure that pool was cold! Even monomchromatic - I love the textures - like the deer tracks or the ferns. Looking forward to March colors!

Julie said...

Just love the pictures! But I think Baily is a little crazy to be in the water.

Wow, Sue, you got great participation for February. What fun!

Love your photos. Somehow the snow makes the green seem all that much deeper.
