Other Worlds


"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."  Henry David Thoreau 

I see mysterious undersea creatures when I look at this photo...

Wednesday's Winding Road


Or path, in this case.  The little path winds around Lake Gregory, and it's a lovely walk on a spring day during the middle of the week when there are few people around.  One can hear the lapping of little wavelets against the shore, the breeze in pines and the calling of birds...nothing else.

A Thought for Saturday

Sunday Sunlight


This is a repeat because, out of all the photos of dogwood blossoms I've taken, this one is my favorite.  I took it years ago on a Sunday while I was out for a walk in the afternoon.

Janu-May


There was a lot more snow than this (about 5 inches), but I didn't have the heart to take any more photos.  I went to bed last night listening to the welcome sound of the rain ... some time during the night it turned to snow, heavy, wet, tree-killing snow.  I lost two lilacs, one cherry tree and one Ash Leaf Maple.  My husband and I pruned as best we could to try and save what's left, but only time will tell if the rest of the lilacs, cherries and maples survive.  I'm hoping the little cherry fruits on the unharmed trees will ripen for the birds.  Our high was only 34 today.  Tonight will be down in the twenties.  January in May ... a mixed blessing, that's for sure.
