I found this strange green stuff that looks a bit like a tropical succulent, but it’s not tropical here at all. To add to the mystery, it disappeared by the next day. What is/was it????

From the Leaves

First I found a dandelion trying to bloom and then this wildflower or flowering grass blooming. It seems too cold, but perhaps the fallen leaves provide enough warmth to encourage blooming.

I walk by this yard every morning, but it’s not until this time of year that I stop to take notice.

I’m glad I did get one photo of peak foliage before two days of crazy storms. Now most of the leaves are on the ground. Seems to happen every year.

For a few days I thought I might have lost 20 years of photographs. Hopefully this has been resolved. My felicia plant did not flower all summer, but now that I have brought it inside for the winter it is producing it’s tiny blue blooms. I softened the photo a bit as I was playing around with my new version of Lightroom.

Three out of three people wanted to see various media, so here is my latest entry in my perpetual journal. A very unusual coloration on an autumn sweetgum leaf.

Late and Wet

Wrangling with a new computer, a week of mainly rain, homework for classes, finding myself a little less tolerant of technology.

But between the downpours, I had to admire my late blooming wet fuchsia this morning.

I have been spending time on natural history illustration, botanical illustration and the perpetual journal and dealing with tech. This has meant a lot less time on photography. My big question is would you prefer a mixed media blog with more posts or stick with occasional photo posts? Please let me know.

I was struck by the beautiful light next to a path through a wooded area. I hope it comes across in the photo.

A nice autumn wildflower, that despite it’s name doesn’t last forever.

My promised cute post for you. I thought there was an insect hopping underfoot, but discovered it was a baby toad. Here it is trying to hide from me under a blade of grass.
