Nature Notes

Mid February

This week was a combination of freeze and thaws, rain and snow. In the largest square you can see water in the bay, icicles on the rocks and snow on the ground.

Moving clockwise: bark peeling naturally on a birch tree, birch bark on snow below the tree, snow on spruce, snow on Echinacea seed heads, and fern parts (I don't know what they are called).

We seem to be experiencing the same roller coaster weather - you make a beauty of a collage from it all, those fern parts!

Always love the way you compile these montages. We've just had two glorious days that make you feel that spring is just around the corner!

Such a lovely, almost sculptural quality, to these photographs!

We are getting rain...and mud. Lots of muck and mud.

Love the bits of yellow. I wish we had that much snow! Though I don't miss absolutely frigid winters.

Sandra said...

i like that bright gold of the birch bark... against the snow it is brilliant

I like the little touches of gold that the bark brings to your snowy pictures.

A wonderful photographic synopsis of winter in your area. I esp love the photos of the birch tree and the bird house and the shoreline!

I love the snow on the seed heads

Sue said...

Winter is hauntingly beautiful at times, but I'm still glad I don't live in the snow.

The one time I did, I couldn't drive anywhere without scaring myself to death!

Wonderful images! I really loved the snow on Echinacea seed heads. They remind me of tiny little snow balls on a stick. So sweet!

Yes the weather has been a roller coaster..I would like to just move into spring.. I wanted to tell you that the upside-down thistle feeder will only deter other thistle seed lovers like house finch..I am not sure if the red-polls or siskins can hang that way... Michelle

A very nice roundup. I think I like the echinacea seed heads best.
