Although spring is right around the corner, winter is still hanging on and let’s face it, it can be dreary. Everything is brown. As winter carries on, I find myself noticing the splashes of color all over the farm and I wanted to share some with you. In some cases, the splash of color is actually black and white!
I’m sure many of you have noticed, but farm clothes seem to lack color. I understand that brown clothing is practical because farming is dirty work and the dirt (or whatever) doesn’t show as much, but c’mon…we need some color up in here! If you ever visit the farm (or simply look at pictures of me) you will almost always see me wearing color. Sometimes too much color, perhaps, but hey, I like it and hopefully I can brighten someone’s day. Anyway, I got this great grey sweatshirt from my dad and I wanted to add a splash of color so I embroidered a little flower on the pocket. The petals didn’t come out quite as I had hoped, but for my first try at free hand embroidery on a sweatshirt, I’ll take it!
Well, I hope these splashes of color brighten your day as we ride out the last few days of winter. And if the dreary weather is getting to you, take a look around for your own splashes of color.
