It’s still winter in Spy Garden. I don’t really regard “official” first days of seasons and prefer to think of March, April and May as spring. So regardless of the temperature (not much higher than 30 predicted for next week) I’m naming March first as Spy Garden’s first day of spring. Officially. And so, a winter retrospective to say farewell to the season.
The above shot was taken the morning after the first big snow of the season (back in December). The entire section of the fence in the foreground of the photo is being moved (many posts have already been taken down), so this photograph may be the last time the whole garden fits into one photo. Unless I climb up on the roof for an aerial shot…
Winter is not really all white/gray in Missouri. The snow usually melts within a few days. But still, the palatte of our winter is quite limited.
I wonder if Mark Rothko would’ve enjoyed Microsoft Paint? hahah
And all that is on a clear day. Comme ca:
Vibrant colors beyond blue sky and
…are reserved for sunrise and sunset.
I’m looking forward to the drastic changes in the “palatte” that spring brings, but do fully appreciate winter. White is, in fact, my favorite color.
