Colours of February February 27, 2010

February is zipping by – it’s time to put up my colours before the month is gone completely.  And it’s an excuse to put up more photos of February in this part of the world – Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.  February 2010 has been a very mild month here, possibly the mildest February on record.  The birds and bees and trees are a bit confused as are the humans – but we have been enjoying our weather and marvelling at it.  The predominant colour now as we near the end of the month is PINK.  The cherry trees are glorious and we also have colour in our skies.

     

   the forsythia are reflecting the good weather

  I think this is a chenomeles (sp.?)         and this was a magical moment when the Fairy Tale Mt. Rainier was illuminated in a pink evening glow

   and this was the moon at 2 a.m. on Thursday Feb. 25

                   

    my new project, a crocheted blanket – started near the end of February – the colour looks grey here but it is closer to pale lavender

   and this is a painting with many grey tones.  I found it today in my unpacking.  The artist is Peggy Lewin who was the wife of the Burmese Ambassador to Bangladesh in the early 1980’s.  We purchased the painting at an exhibition featuring paintings by Peggy Lewin; ceramics by Carol Kabir, a potter; and woven rugs by myself, a weaver.

    Wow – so many colours already. We’ll have to wait a long time for that.

  4. Wow – so much color in February!!! A feast for the eyes….especially as it’s been particularly grey, snowy, rainy, windy, etc here lately.

    Thanks for joining in the fun!!! (And for reminding me that tomorrow is March 1 – when I should do a wrap-up of the month’s colors!)

    thanks for stopping by my blog! I use a very simple Canon Elf digital. Beautiful Seattle colours already. It is more difficult to find the colours here.
