Welcome April!


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!


Big thanks to everyone who shared some colors of their own.

The Colors of March

From North to South (near as I can figure):

After what seems like a month of rain and high water in New Hampshire, we're having an unusually sunny and warm weekend.


I'll be posting a call for the colors of April in the middle of the month, so keep your cameras ready to capture colors where you live (or travel)!!


Happy April!

You have really captured the fantastic colours in the crocus. Love looking at all the links, Thank you!

Theresa said...

And my you really have rallied a lot of bloggers to share their colors every month! Yours look beautiful and from all the wet reports coming from the NE, you certainly need a little sunshine...more than a little.
Glad to see you back blogging, and yes, Gene is feeling better. Must have been the blanket. ;-)

Jennifer said...

The purple veins and bright orange centers of the flowers in the top picture are awesome!

Deanna said...

Ever since I started following your color photo projects, I've been noticing color everywhere, and wishing I had my camera with me. :-) Thank you for the heightened awareness!

Deanna MacCrone Johnson said...

Ping! Are you okay, Sue? I miss your posts!

Leigh said...

Sue, is everything okay? We haven't heard from you in awhile and I'm feeling a little worried about you.
