Colors of Winter (with acorns)

And to think I once thought of winter as gray! It was an art teacher who taught me to see the colors within colors. Then two long years of winters in Estonia as a Peace Corps volunteer gave me LOTS of time to practice seeing the colors of winter. Now those colors are some of my favorites of the whole year. This photo is the ground under a post oak, covered as always with acorns and sticks, and this time of year, in lovely colors of moss, grass and acorns.
