Winter Hues

I have to admit that I am not fond of winter. It is my least favorite season. I hate the cold, the snow, the ice and everything that goes with it. Living in northeast Ohio, winter seems to linger a bit too long and by February, I'm beginning to count the days until spring.

But even though I truly despise winter, there is something calming about the winter hues—the soft shadows in the freshly fallen snow, the stark brown branches of the trees against a bright blue sky, the dried red berries hanging off a branch and even the icicles hanging from the roof—all showcasing nature's simplicity at its best. Below is a color palette of the winter hues surrounding my home. What are yours?

Spring is only 48 days away but in the meantime, I will enjoy the hues of winter as I patiently wait for the daffodils to bloom! Enjoy!
