One Word Photo Challenge: Beaver (Brown)

March 10, 2015 brown 005


Some might call it ‘mole-skin’ or ‘cafe au lait,’ but Jenny calls it ‘beaver.’

By whatever moniker, it proves a dull and washed out shade of brown.  Or perhaps a dark faded khaki?

This color looks to me as though it has been through the washer a time or ten too many.

It is the color still most prominent in our garden: the color of winter bleached leaves and long dead stems; spores, and cold scorched foliage.

But from such as this is the newness of spring nurtured.  It holds life, potential, promise.

And so as always, I want to thank Jenny for choosing the perfect color again this week.

In searching for ‘beaver brown’ I was able to look beyond it and find more signs of change; more promises of  spring’s return.

and what you want will come to you,

and there are times to go out into the world

and find such a thing for yourself.”
