Baseball Chatter?



You might hear chatter at the bleacher seats, but not baseball chatter just yet.  And temperatures are too cold to get water from the fountain.  But, not to worry, the backfield fences are holding up just fine and they will be there for you come spring.


 Enjoy!

More Winter Wildflowers





More winter wildflowers from earlier this week.  Above is a Rudbeckia hirta (Black-eyed Susan).  To the left are Eryngium yuccifolium (Rattlesnake Master).  And below are Rumex crispus (Curly Dock).

Enjoy!

Winter Wildflowers


Many wildflowers keep some beauty in winter.  Above is Monarda Fistulosa (Wild Bergamot).  The  Silphium laciniatum (Compass Plant) flower to the right is nearly gone, but still has some semblance of her former bloom.  And the Parthenium Integrifolium (Wild Quinine) below displays an interesting texture when dried.  She is on the state endangered species list.  Many of these have been picked over to some extent by birds wintering nearby.

Enjoy!

Frosty Dew



The ground was covered with frost this morning.  But as soon as the sun's rays were felt, the frost began to melt and looked like dew.  I also discovered a new colony of Ostrich Fern growing along the marsh road pond.   The frost outlined the fronds and the color contrast were beautiful.  Also interesting were dew drops that froze and more slowly melted.

Temperatures Dip

Frost on Dandelion



Freezing temperatures frosted some of the landscape this morning.  The lake is mostly frozen over.  There is open water along the edges.  

Stay warm and enjoy!

 These dried beauties are from a few days ago.  Something nice to share on this drab and soggy day.

On the Fence


Autumn is dulling and thinning.  Like a season on the fence soon to cross over.

Enjoy!
