The first snow landed gently last evening.

Even the smaller branches will withstand snow of this nature.

This morning the feelings is still here in the freshness of the obvious change.

A squirrel was working up a storm, it seemed it was raining invisible conifer cones, I was stumped under this tree tonight as I could hear and vaguely see a large number of items being dropped from above but couldn’t for awhile spot the conifer cones on the ground once they landed as they seemed to disappear amongst the bunchberries. A squirrel is on my family coat of arms so I suspected the was some kind of ancestral shenanigans perhaps?

Ah, these green cones travel quick and blend in well, I never knew they harvest the resiny green ones. Click on to checkout the bed of bunchberries on the ground.

Mystery solved, now a few mushrooms, the attractive but (not recommended as edible) Scaly Vase Chanterelle (Gomphus floccosus).

11 Apr

good morning

I don’t know what to call it, moss, lichen, tree branch, fungus, decay, life, etc

I’m still standing, this area has lots of trees cycling naturally in the oneness.

Here is a Phellinus, I’ll need to search around for its first name though they are very common here, I’ve seen hundreds just this evening.

This old fungus could tell some stories.

The number of holes on this tree trunk is rather unusual in these woods. You may need to click on the photo to notice these.

I suppose it is time to turn in, good night.

Wow what a now

This morning and this afternoon were like day and night. Here is a glimpse of the morning drive.

Now and change, they never appear to stop. here is some more morning now.

Here is some afternoon now below, this photo is taken almost in line with the above morning photo only a hundred feet to the left and facing  in the other direction.

The crow kept a pretty low profile through the bluster, it was a good sign to see them starting to get up and about.

Like now and change these photos were taken on the move,—Fly for now
