In colour, flask and drizzle.

1. I stop startled at the sight of a bright yellow maple tree. On a flat grey morning, it is the only thing with any colour -- apart from the chips and bubbles of bird song.

2. I buy a stainless steel flask to keep our tea hot.

3. Drizzle has beaded silver grey on my coat.

  1. That last one is perfect. I was trying to describe a similar moment a while ago, and the words escaped me, I guess you found them!

  2. I LOVE it when there is a shock of color against a neutral background. How fantastic that it gave you a start. How delicious!
