Even when February is mild, like ours has been (for the most part), the colours are always so drab and depressing. At its best, the grass is soggy, brown, and yellow. There is mud everywhere. No leaves, no flowers. Leftover slush. In other words, yuck. At least it's not blizzarding, I suppose. In any case, I thought I'd bring a splash (literally) of colour into our lives this February, with a few shots from an experiment my younger brother showed us. Basically, you take a bowl of milk, drop in some food colouring, add a little dish soap in the middle, and voila, a beautiful swirly pattern is formed. It even looked nice when we dumped it all out!
