Mossy Log

The forest has started breaking down this log.

It is covered with moss, and has leaves piled to the lee of it.

I forget what moss has instead of flowers, but I love the tiny details of them. The pine needles are only 2 inches long.

Black Eyed Susans

One frosty morning, I noticed the seedheads of some black eyed susans.
I had never noticed the details before,

the architecture of the plant and the frost!

The Moon

And I took more photos of the moon, with trees,

and cattails,

with milkweed,

and with grass.

Skywatch Friday

I have been organizing photos, and found this series from early November -

the moon was nearing the western horizon,

and the geese were looking for a nice field for the day's business.

Reflections and Ice

Some mornings, there is a skin of ice on the water, and the trees are reflected in both the water and the ice.

Watery Wednesday

Standing by the three branches that make a dam on this small stream,

I notice the difference between the water downstream,

and the ice upstream.

Frost on the Fallen Leaves

The thyme leaves are still green,

although all the leaves

have fallen off the trees now.

The frost and the shadows still animate them!


One sprout of my white lilac is confused, and is putting out fresh leaves!

Red Currants

Another surprise last week!

Red currants still on the bushes, spreading over into the park!

I am fascinated by the shadows they cast

on the fence!


Not all of the milkweed seeds have flown away yet.

Some are clinging to the pods.

It is amazing what you can find as you walk around the suburbs!

This chrysanthemum was still blooming last week!

After a month and more of frosty nights!

Queen Anne's Lace

Frost coated the pine needles and cones early in the morning.

But later in the day,

the frost was gone.

Skywatch Friday

Usually the fog does not last this far into our walks,

so I was able to photograph new trees with fog enveloping them.
