This morning’s light revealed an icy fog and frost-kissed plants. No outdoor blooms for the January 2014 Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, but interesting light and contrasts nonetheless.
Color on such a hazy winter morning can be striking on close inspection.
Small blueberry shrubs add a red tinge to the landscape.
The seed heads of tall sedum add a brownish-red hue.
And holly berries shine in the winter landscape, even when winter rains have replaced winter snow during our southern New England January thaw.
Reds add warmth to my winter view, in stark contrast to the chilly shade of a blue spruce branch against a foggy backdrop.
But as the sun rose higher in the sky, slowly chasing the fog away, the depth and subtle colors of the surrounding woodlands was my eye candy.
Inside, the morning light reflects off the amaryllis bud still hiding within.
But jasmine provides the only bloom.
It’s sweet scent hints of the aromas of spring.
