In winter in the Northeast, all the hardwood trees are bare. Not dead, just sleeping, waiting to make a glorious comeback in the spring. This is a “tip of the hat” to one of my favorites, an ornamental pear tree that is often seen in the background of my hat photos. Corrugated rib at the brim, a classic border topped off with winter’s sleeping trees. All in a classic combination of brown and blues. Something so soothing about these colors. Enjoy.
