Color in February

The snow on the ground and sheets on the clothesline create swaths of white on a winter afternoon.

But it is sunny and in the mid-40s and the smell of sun-dried sheets freshens the house.

February in Ohio can seem the dreariest of months, but on a sunny day, as the sun melts, I find color.

When walking the dogs down a farm lane, I look beneath the cedar tree and find blue.

And, when working Raven in the sheep pasture, I find what the sheep and horses know is there.

Blades of green are between the brown blades, beneath the melting snow.

The brightest color, though, is found in the yard.
