click on photo's to enlarge
My youngest daughter and her family live in the forest where I enjoy taking my camera out looking for pictures. I find some in unlikely places, thanks to the super macro setting on my camera!
These toadstool's are actually very small, probably not more than a half inch in diameter. The moss, twigs and leaves make a nice background. I like how the light shows through the lower part of the smaller one.
This is what the hazelnut trees look like in the early spring. I like to think of these catkins as the Lords decorations.
This is a view down the hill before the trees have any leaves. The Trillium's are not blooming yet in this picture.
I need to do a little research on the different types of lichen we have. I think this one is pretty, whatever it is.
Here's another one growing on a fruit tree. I've seen this type used in floral decorations.
I believe this is some sort of moss. it isn't very pretty but it's interesting just the same. It was growing on a fruit tree with some Lichen.
Here are the buds of the flowering quince. I have always loved this shrub, but have never had one. The blossoms are a bright pink and one of the first to bloom around here. After the bleakness of winter this pretty flower can make my heart sing!
This little clump of moss was about the size of a silver dollar. The green is very bright and a bit translucent. The brown stick looking things around it are pine needles. (I love macro!)
A late winter scene. Moss, fern, dried leaves and fallen branches. Can you see any beauty in this. I can, but I also see work. Where's the rake! LOL
Here is another type of moss. If you click to enlarge it you can better see the tiny brown things which I believe were the seed pods. It looks like a tiny forest.
This rock is about two foot long and the moss seems to love it. Just look how it clings and is so healthy looking.
I think this plant is very interesting but I don't have a clue what it is.
There are so many interesting plants in the world but we don't usually see most of them while we are walking. It pays to get on our knees once in a while and see what the woodsy critter do.
While you are down there, I know there is someone who would love to hear from you....
Have a blessed week
