January 11/ Nature Notes

Last Saturday - Is it really January?


No ice so of course the swans were swimming. Wouldn't you? No? Me neither.

Largest square: two trumpeter swans who were very funny because one was a copy-cat swan that turned it's head every time the other one did.

Moving clockwise: a gull's feather resting on a a dried weed, fungi on a log, dried dog-strangling vine (nasty invasive stuff...but pretty), a still-green fern, and ice atop an upright cedar log.

You've given us another wonderful collage. It's nice to see nature at this time of the year even if there is no snow or ice.

Lovely collage. The colors are so restful.

You would laugh...I am tired...but did not see that was a feather till I read...not sure what I thought it was but sure not a feather...first quick glance thought a fat bug of some kind...but looked again and no...so just went on down and read.

I have been cutting fabric and had to quit because I was messing up...just too tired to think straight.

Leora said...

I love the fern. Such a graceful plant. And yes, even invasives can be pretty, sigh.
