|The Toronto Botanical Garden's entry garden in January 2013|
Last June, when Paul Zammit, head of horticulture at the Toronto Botanical Garden, showed our Fling garden bloggers how he magicked a container, he made the bold statement: Brown is a colour. Yes, Paul, you're right. Look at all the shades of it above. Brown is beautiful.
Though, technically, winter doesn't come for three weeks, I've tried to turn you on to it before. Winter is a season with a lot of brown in it. Or a lot of browns. Think of them all; the richness. Tan, russet, fawn, bronze, buff, chestnut, coffee, sepia, ochre. Goodness, there's even a brown called fulvous!
So, for the last post of my unofficial NaBloPoMo 2015, I'm going to try showing the browns in my life some respect, appreciation and gratitude. I invite you to join me.
