Some last pictures of the snow before it melts.
From a recent walk.
There’s a new trail I discovered this fall, and it’s one that wasn’t there in the spring. I know this because in the spring I tried to follow it, and it was only a deer trail. It’s not very long, just a connector between other trails.
But it has a glacial erratic ten feet high part way through it, and the trail winds round it. I took these pictures a few days ago.
Autumn is nearly here; leaves are starting to fall.
“Stop!” I said. “I must take a picture of these shadows!”
It was the contrast in colours inside and outside of the shadows that caught my eye. Even in late morning, the sun is low in the skies these days.
I was struck by this pattern of shadows in the late afternoon light.
I tossed old stalks from a money plant some months ago, while clearing out Things That Might Attract a Crazy Teenage Cat. The intention was to move them to the compost (yes, I’d removed the seeds). They’re still there, outside the door. And they’re still pretty.
Very pretty at this time of year.
I don’t know what kind of tree this is, but it has really big leaves and they look really pretty when the sun shines through them.
Taken at the beach.
