There’s rain in the forecast today. And tomorrow.
I’m not entirely sorry about this: it is February, after all. And it isn’t snow. And Monday was gloriously sunny. Besides – I can hear my dad’s voice in my head, as he looks out across a drought-browned West Texas lawn – we need the rain. Those spring flowers and trees I love so much won’t grow without it.
One of my favorite hashtags on Instagram is #chasinglight. It yields gorgeous photos of skies, sunsets and small everyday scenes. And it reminds me to do what I always feel the need to do in the depths of winter: chase a little light of my own.
Because it’s grey outside, I’m also chasing color this week, and I thought I’d share some of it with you.
In addition to the sprig of freesia above (a gift from my ever-kind florist), I spotted the season’s first crocuses – they’re early! – in Cambridge this week.
The skies may be grey today, but on Monday morning, they were my favorite deep, bold blue.
This bright pink cowl took me ages to finish, but is providing a much-needed shot of color and warmth.
Where are you finding color and light these days?
