you capture::color

There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice. ~John Calvin
The other day I came across the I Should Be Folding Laundry blog with a great challenge called You Capture. It's a picture challenge...perfect practice for my goal. This week's challenge is COLOR. During these long weeks of overcast, wintry weather it's fun to look for bursts of color, especially if you can find some color outside when everything is so bleak. The other day I captured these little overachievers pushing their way up through the ground just reaching for the sky on a warm and sunny 50 degree day.

Hopefully these Dutch Irises are strong-willed and deeply rooted because there's another winter storm coming tonight!
Just a reminder...Haiti is still in need. If you can and want to help just click on one of those links up there on the left. The need is still great. xo ANG

Wow! Your irises are already coming up? What part of the country are you in? We're outside of D.C. and it is snowing away.

The photograph itself is lovely. I too like the burst of green. Just think, in a couple of weeks, there will be green bursting forth all around us.
