Jen over at Muddy Boot Dreams has linked up with Heather at Life is Like a Garden and These are My Colors looking for winter color and posting No Winter Whining on Sundays. They have invited the rest of us to look for the color in our winter scapes. I do believe that our Canadian friends have more snow that we do, at least here on the northern plains of Colorado. While we don't have much snow and the weather has been rather warm and mild, there still really isn't much color in the garden with the snow mostly melted. Instead we see brown. A lot of brown. Take a look.
Most of snow has melted and the weather has been mild as the afternoon sun today warms the garden beds.We have been talking about what we will plant and have signed up for a class at the Ft. Collins Nursery on "How to Raise Killer Tomatoes." Hard to realize that it is still January.
Do you recognize these brown beauties? Asparagus. The plants planted late in the summer did so well. I have high hopes of a few tasty sprigs in the spring.
Here's a spot of color. The girls begged to be let out, so we let them wander the garden for a bit. They must be guarded because there is a red tailed hawk that lurks about. They do love roaming free to peck and scratch and take dust baths. Happy hens lay tasty eggs.

He enjoys a bit of of a dust bath, too.
Midwinter we have colored eggs. Easter eggs year round. Tasty Eggs.
What sort of color are you finding in your garden?
