Loveliness abounds away from the city. It's amazing how an intention to photograph can enhance one's viewing experience. A non-native Star Magnolia, above, with last fall's leftover leaves-- now lace-like, below.
Click on the photo to see the delicateness. (Watch for lace-leaf prints in a few weeks. )
Skunk cabbage with mono-petal.....
And not to be outdone...the Pussywillow in full regalia.
...And grateful inhabitant.
Cedar and lichen up close.
Lovely Spirea ready to bust out its leaves.
And remember this painting??
Here, its current state-- rotated-- with gold circles rescued from the green, a reduced number of sections, and leftover barn-reds. (Still in process -- of course!) And by the way, if you'd care to comment on which version you prefer, I'd find it interesting to know -- although at this point, there's no turning back...
Hope you had a great weekend and you have a great week ahead of you!!
