Is It Spring Yet?

January 3, 2010

Waiting for the clouds to lift I remembered it’s winter and they’ll be here awhile.

So, camera in hand I went out to see if there was anything interesting in my garden to photograph.

You know I was looking for color!  I managed to find some in these blown glass balls lying on the ground.

A spot of yellow from my glass garden fairy hanging in a magnolia.

Not much color in this birdhouse shot, but I wondered when the next bird family might move in.

Then a couple stumps over I was drawn to this spring green moss that caught my eye.

When I looked up at the sky it was still gray.

3~365: Blue Chairs

So I went back to one of my favorite spots to capture my favorite turquoise chairs in a new way.  The photo above is my shot for today on my new blog, 365 Photos…one day at a time.  Since this blog is for my garden and my work blog is for…well, work (!), I chose to start a fresh new blog for taking a photo a day.  It’s the Shutter Sisters 365 Project, which I was pulled into by my friend Chris.  I’ll have camera in hand, shooting something daily and am looking forward to the colors I might find instead of focusing on the usual winter doldrums.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time………

    Happy New Year! I am new here, just followed on your comment on Tatyana’s. I love that stump full of yellow-green mosses, as if they are curtains for some unknown hidden inside. I am from the tropics and i can provide a whole year of contrast to your winter gardens. Thank you.

    I love your chairs. Very ambitious to do a 365, I’ll check out your blog. I just couldn’t commit but I am doing a 52 (wow!). There’s a Flickr group for that, too, so I’m not the only one who can’t commit 🙂

    I will certainly check out your new blog. You are going to be a blog goddess with all these blogs going.

  11. I know I’m late, but I had to comment on your beautiful post. I like the colored glass balls and the mossy stump. I also like those fantastic blue chairs. Have great week!

  12. You’re never late, Deb, thanks for stopping by!

  13. Beautiful! I look forward to the coming of spring as well. We are in the Willamette Valley and I love seeing the daffodils which have bloomed already this year. =) ~Cori
