Melissa J. Cunningham said...

Beautiful, but I'm ready for summer or a beach like this!

Joanne said...

That crocus sprout is a sure sign that Spring is coming ... Still a long way off here in New England, with snow falling today ... Happy Friday :)

VR Barkowski said...

Lovely list. Having spent most of my life in California, winter is still magic to me. I love it's stark beauty. And if there's a kiss snow, even better!

VR Barkowski said...

Uh, that should say kiss OF snow. I like snow, but we've never snogged. :)

The Happy Whisk said...

Candle glow and winter sky, are my favorites from that list.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

Where I live, the winter colors are more like the ones in the photo at the top of your blog. So far I'm not missing that kiss of snow:)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Frozen noses isn't a color? Good list as always!

#8 Icicle Shimmer sounds like a paint swatch color. Very pretty sounding!

LR said...

Lovely winter colors! Gotta enjoy every season. :)

Elspeth Antonelli said...

These are wonderful! I wish the winters around here looked like that. Here is more grey clouds and splashes of raindrops in puddles.

Laura Eno said...

Great list! It's funny, since I grew up in San Diego, but those are still my mindset for winter. I'm not sure if I could ever adapt to the southern hemisphere, with Dec and the holidays being the height of summer.

The Golden Eagle said...

I love your list of colors!

Mason Canyon said...

Great list and a nice reminder winter can be colorful.

I love how you painted such a picture with so few words--it's a poem!

Everyone - I'm glad you enjoyed the list and see that winter does have color even though it may be shades of gray. I've been out experiencing one of my Christmas gifts most of the day, so things are running later than normal.

San Antonio has yo-yo winters. It's 70 today and sunny. Rain is forecast tomorrow. And arctic cold for most of next week. Brrr.

Jan Morrison said...

most excellent list - I like candle glow and juniper -nice colours...
we have 'wet smudge' 'angry driver'

Holly Ruggiero said...

Great imagery.

Gail said...

Wonderful ten! I can see those colors at each turn.

Lydia K said...

I can't wait for the crocus. Is that bad, since it's only January?

Maryann Miller said...

What a terrific list. I think we might get our kiss of snow here in East Texas this weekend. I like the snow, so I'm kind of hoping, as long as it isn't a ton of wet snow that breaks branches on my pine trees.

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Today seemed drab and dreary to me, and I think that I wasn't really paying enough *attention* to all the life and colors that were actually out there. Thanks for this beautiful post...it got me thinking. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Jan - We'll have plenty of wet smudge around here over the weekend, so they say.

Holly and Gail - Thanks.

Lydia - Not bad. I'm ready for spring, too. I want to make a new rule that it should arrive before the end of January :)

Maryann - Enjoy your kiss of snow if it arrives.

Elizabeth - Very good!

Madeleine said...

I love your colour descriptions though Crocus sprout conjures up some odd images of brussel sprout- crocus hybrid LOL! :O)

Carol Kilgore said...

Madeleine - I laughed out loud! Love it. Food for your eyes and your body!

RaShelle said...

Carol - Great top 10. Hope your weekend is fantastic.

Carol Kilgore said...

RaShelle - Hope yours is wonderful, too.

The Words Crafter said...

These are great! Some of them would also make great lip gloss names, lol!

Shirley said...

I didn't see "dreary" on your list. I hate winter. It's cold! That's a word that should be removed from the English language.

Bring on Spring.

Patti Lacy said...

This is such a fun blog! Why did my mouth water when I read the colors?
Talk about a mixed-up person!!!
Blessings,
Patti

Medeia Sharif said...

I was thinking the exact same thing as Words Crafter: makeup names.

Have a great week.

Carol Kilgore said...

Words Crafter - Color is color, in nature or on our faces.

Shirley - Maybe it's all in how we see things ala "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

Patti - Maybe it's those mouthwatering holly berries - LOL

Medeia - Maybe I should check the job openings for make-up product namer.
