Simply Neutrals #37

Hello dears, welcome to Simply Neutrals!

Nature is still providing us here on the northern hemisphere with beautiful winter neutrals. Like these leaves that I found in the woods, in decay, still hanging on by a thread to their branches. Soon they will be replaced by fresh green new spring leaves.

Feature of last week

The seasons and elements have their influence on man-made stuff as well. Like the beautiful old walls and window dear Mascha of Maschas Buch shared with us.

Mascha often shares beautiful photos of old buildings on her blog.

Dear Mascha, here is your feature blog button if you like:

On to this week's party!


To join the party, please keep the following things in mind:

1) Please link only to the blogpost that contains the photo(s) you want to share, and not to your blog's homepage.

2) Kindly link back to AppleApricot by putting a link to my blog in your blogpost.

Of course you're most welcome to use the blog button of Simply Neutrals Tuesday as well
(which can be found in the sidebar of my blog)

3) Link ups to both new and older blog posts are welcome.
Of course it would be nice if you link up to a new or recent blog post, but if there is something from the archives you'd really want to link up here, then please feel welcome to do so.

4) You can link up from your blog, but if you do not have a blog but would love to link up from your instagram or other social media account, that's perfectly fine too.
Beware though, that may be not everyone can come visit and/or leave you a comment there.

5) Please take time to visit some of the other link ups and send them some love.
The most recently added link ups will show in the list first.

Time for the link up!

  4. Wen, I love the beautiful leaf you captured in it's single state awaiting spring. The sun is different here now, and we are on daylight savings time so longer light during the day. I love Mascha's pretty! Have a great week and thanks for this challenge each week! :D

  5. Your Winter leaves are amazing hanging so delicately there and your photography is superb dear Wen! You are so gifted with this!
    Thank you for always hosting this SNT party for us. We are always inspired by the beautiful artworks and images here such as Mascha's today. I so love her blog!
    Sending many hugs and love,

  6. Great leaf pictures, I love the old bricks too!

  7. Hello Wen, What beautiful leaf photos you have shown us. Fancy those leaves hanging on all through Winter! Mascha's photos were full of atmosphere. Thanks for hosting SNT once again. Hope your week is full of beauty.
    Hugs from Jesse XXOO

  8. Beautiful photos dear Wen~ Tells so many stories and gives thought - to the old giving way to the new~ TFS I enjoy the textures Mascha shared with us here. The walls/buildings are an amazing feast for the eyes.I hope to visit each new entry this week! <3 Hugs, karen o

  9. We're hopeful for spring here too, but woke up yesterday to yet more of the white stuff (but fortunately not what they're currently getting on the eastern seaboard). I'm always amazed by how many trees manage to hold onto their leaves throughout the long blustery winter - you'd wonder at their tenacity.

  10. Your captured leaf is very sweet. I have a lovely Japanese Maple that keeps its little brown shriveled leaves until just before the new green growth occurs. I love each of the linked participants and what they have created and shared. Simply Neutrals is definitely a calming and peaceful way to slow down for even a few precious minutes. Thank you very much Wen Dear. <3


Thank you so much for leaving me a sweet message, I love reading your comments. Hugs and happy day to you! xx Wen
