All the Fields Are Brown and The Sky is Gray

The winter has set in here, in The Burg.  Today we went for a drive.  We have been socked-in with clouds for about a month, or so it seems.  The sun is scarce and this is unusual.

Once the beautiful colors of autumn have finished their glorious display of plumage, the browns and grays set in.  Not a lot of color here that I have found.

Here is what I found today:

All The Leaves Are Brown….

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray……

I love color and I love to take pictures.  This time of year it is hard to find the color, and when the temperatures are in the low teens, I do not want to go for a walk.  We spent several years in a mountain town in southern California – and as the song implies – “California dreamin’, on such a winters day” – may narrowly imply San Diego or Los Angeles.   Where we lived it was brown.  High desert country and the pines on the higher peaks were surrounded by brown dirt and gray rocks and if the sky was gray, the pines looked darker gray.  Understand it was still beautiful!

One of the reasons I love the Christmas season is all the colors we create!  A fun time to decorate.  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  While outside looks like this:

Inside can look like this:

Stay warm both inside and outside this winter season.  Spring is coming, it always does.

Enjoy!
