Colour from the Season - Horse Chestnut bud red

Hard to believe after the prolonged cold weather - that any new growth would be venturing out of the trees and ground - but this morning I noticed that the Horse Chestnuts were starting to bud and it seemed fitting to start a new year with new growth. The sticky red of the bud alongside the smooth brown and purple of its branch.

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
