One Word Photo Challenge: More Persimmon

January 13, 2013 bleak 041


Persimmon serves as a wonderful foil to our winter world of greys, browns, white, and the occasional green.

It is as if Jenny knew our eyes and brains are starved for a splash of color when she selected “Persimmon” for the middle of January.

These are a few of “The remains of the season” we found in our wanderings today.  Some are a little more persimmon-like than others.

But I offer them up anyway, with wishes that you are safe and warm this evening.

  2. Your creeping Jenny is such a lovely color! Ours die back completely, so we don’t get this prolonged fall color. I see you had freezing rain – magical crystal kingdom! Currently, we’re having snow flurries – such a wintry scene with the gently falling flakes – winter does seem magical in its own way.

    • Yes, it is. I’ve just come in from taking more photos. It looks magical, but we’ve had quite a bit of damage already- including a grand old Azalea which toppled over this morning. SO glad yours is gently falling snow and not a heavy coating of ice this time. Do enjoy your day inside with Wren 😉 WG

  3. Oh, I love these! The perfect pop of color against the wintry greys. Thank you so much for sharing.
