The other day I was thinking of last December. I went through some photos to remind myself of everything that happened and ran into this gem. At the very end of last year, we were treated to gorgeous, glittering woods after snowfall:
It was really hard to get the light and shadow balanced well; this is one of my better shots, I think, in that respect. The light on the icy trees is so beautiful!
For the U.S.: Happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully the weather will be fine for the holiday.
Here is a half of a November halo from a year or two ago seen through a car window. Beautiful and fascinating, isn’t it?
I’m taking a few days completely off of social media and will resume posting next week.
Spring is my favorite season, but fall definitely has its share of beauty.
Here’s a spiderweb on our backyard filled with dewdrops. Love it.
Somehow this feels like the perfect thing for the beginning of October, even though I spotted it in out driveway a few weeks ago: a teeny, tiny perfect feather.
On the basis of color and shape, I’m guessing a baby turkey. We’ve had a gaggle of five hanging around on and off with their mother and an aunt.
I just love nature – it creates such amazing things!
There’s a new “baby” in our house! The monstera plant grew a new leaf:
I find the new, uncurling leaves of any plants fascinating – the shapes and colors change almost daily, and the shape, especially, can get very ornate. Beautiful.
P.S. I won’t be blogging on Monday due to Labor Day. Hope my U.S. readers have a relaxing long weekend!
Spring is my absolute favorite time of the year, but summer is great, too. A case in point: a July sunset near our house from a few years ago:
Isn’t it amazing? I find the pink cloud cover turning gradually to purple especially striking.
In business-related news, I’m taking a few days off to attend my cousin’s wedding. My Etsy shop is in vacation mode for the duration, and instead of a fresh post, I’ll be reblogging from my hobby blog Co-Geeking on Monday.
A wild rose in our neighborhood that’s blossoming for the first time in my memory surprised us with pink flowers!
There are plenty of buds, so we’ll be enjoying these roses for a time still. Ahh! 🙂
The wild ground ivy I photographed a few years ago seems to have permanently settled our yard.
It’s from the mint family, so it shouldn’t be dangerous like it’s near-namesake poison ivy.
Now, if only ground ivy could choke out poison ivy in our back woods, I would not mind it… 🙂
Last weekend, after some more snow and clouds during the week, it was so nice to get some sun!
I love how the sunlight filters through the thin (but tall) layer of snow on the branches.
I have unfortunately not been feeling well for several days, so instead of a longer post, please have a bunny face wash thankyou.
