February's Palette

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



February's palette

These last drab days of winter, every spark of color in the landscape is a welcome sight. The golden heads of some old dry grass caught my eye today. I think the clump of trees in the background is growing around a sinkhole.


Bar
One year ago, I posted a winter photo of our neighbor's "dark barn".

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
