If youíve spent any amount of time in the Upper Peninsula in the winter, you know that there isnít much color around, mostly black and white, maybe toss in a little gray, even a little blue if the sky is cloudless or Lake Superior isnít frozen. But if you slow down and really look, like Judy Byykkonen did this week while out skiing, you may be surprised at what you find. Her first shot is some type of seeds that have blown off trees on the trails. It made the snow look polka-dotted, not really a color, but a neat design.

The color comes in the next two photos... cedar green and yellow-brown seeds decorating the white and wrinkled red mountain ash berries adding a splash of color in the trees. Beautiful!

There is a bit of color in todayís video, also, only itís mostly from bright clothing that the folks enjoying the Ironwood winter are wearing. Itís a great way to brighten wintry days... put on some colorful gear and get out there and enjoy the snow. I saw this saying the other day and it seems like a good reminder: ďIf you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of snowĒ. Get out there and find the joy!

The snow in my front yard gets covered in berries like this, except mine are from a Hawthorne tree. Many birds like them but for some reason the Cardinals love them. I've counted more that a dozen Cardinals in the tree at times.
