Winter color at Jackson Bog


Who said winter is drab? I hiked around Jackson Bog this afternoon and found color everywhere -- green skunk cabbages poking up through the ice, red rose hips, orange fungus, bright green cress in the flowing water, white poison sumac berries, blue buckthorn berries, as well as winter's usual rich brown seed heads and bright blue sky. Posted by Picasa

Isn't it exciting to find these bright colors this time of year, when every other season we almost take them for granted. Thanks for sharing your winter color with us.

What a lovely collection - and a great walk by the look of things.

Everything is so fresh and new at this time, and with less foliage the colours, shapes and textures of bark, branches and buds are all the more noticeable.

Richard did a horticulture course some years ago, during which he often had to collect specimens of leaves, flowers, bark, etc. It is amazing how we started to see plants differently at that time and took more notice of individual aspects.
