Our first Winter Wednesday assignment was this: Finding Winter Colors: The bareness of the trees and the appearance of a white snowy landscape help to sharpen the other colors of winter. Find a few minutes this week to notice the colors you can observe in your own backyard, even if it is from your window. Keep track of the colors you observe this week in your nature journal.
Here are some of the things we found on our winter colors nature walk. We noticed that not only do the colors stand out
but also we noticed the richness of textures
and contrasts of light and shadow
