Just a much-needed bit of color for a winter day.  We’ve been having a lot of grey skies but without the joy (to me) of some lovely snow to brighten things up.  And yesterday we had high winds, too.  But I know spring isn’t too far away and maybe we’ll get some more snow before then.  🙂

It’s been a busy week, so I’m simply going to share a photo I took on my walk yesterday morning.  It was a therapeutic walk, as I needed to be outside and unhurried.  Covered from head to foot to avoid any ticks, I took one of the unimproved paths, more like an animal track.  With all the rain, everything is overgrown and I lost the track for a time.  Soaked above the knees from bushwhacking through high wet grass and other plants, a nice little crop of burrs stuck to pants and socks, I finally found it again.  Although there’s a lot of yellow amongst the green, these bright beauties add their own bit of color.

The days are getting colder.  Vegetable colors fade from brilliant reds, peaches, blues and oranges to more muted colors. Fruit becomes less soft, more crisp and crunchy. But during the last market a few weeks ago, produce made its last, colorful stand.  I bought squash, apples for yet more applesauce and other end-of-summer goodies and enjoyed the last warmth of the season.

What hue/s express me?  I like dark, rich, bright colors, so this shot out of all my possible choices may come the closest to including all those colors I love.  What do you think they say about me?  What hues did others choose?  Check the Photo Challenge post.

A visit to San Francisco’s Chinatown this week provided many opportunities to see gorgeous, saturated colors. This is one of my favorites. To view other colors, click here: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/27/photo-challenge-saturated/.
