Take Three Thursday - January 25th

In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday.   The idea is to take photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment,  by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?  

Have a look at what others have noticed this week:

Karen at Random Reflections 
Melissa at Daily Life-Bits & Pieces
Maggie at Farmers Wife Day by Day

This week what I have been noticing that Mother Nature paints with some intense colour during the winter months.  I am sure that because the winter daylight hours are brief & animals & birds need to find food easily, Mother Nature paints many of the seeds & berries left about in red.  I know a tiny bit about the science of red & the vision wave length of birds.    I am seeing red this Thursday.

  4. That bright red really shows up! Our red dogwood berries are long gone, but it is interesting that there's so much red. Good catch :)

    I'm back from my blog break - and working on getting a more regular routine of blogging again - and finally getting around to catching up on blog reading.

  11. Those reads are all the more effective for being set against the soft hazy whites and greys. Lovely group ...
