knot shore & sea sky

24 Apr

Some folks will know what this is, these were covered with bumblebee queens a few weeks ago. At that time there was little around to provide nourishment to start the new generation, but these pussy willows really came through in the crunch.

Let the rain shine down, things couldn’t be without it. In the distant another obvious essential  of life.

The one is self sufficient no matter what.

Click on this photo, sea sky, the clouds above the sun line resemble an ocean’s shore line, especially if you look only at the top 2/3 of the photo.

This one helped out on earth day. ciao for now

Return to cinder

12 Apr

Address unknown, I believe there was a garage here in the early 1960s before they closed this road due to the new trans Canada highway.

These blocks have become comfy protective homes for a few plant.

Moss grows fat on and in  non-rolling stones

This is slightly off subject though this tiny intruder appeared to inch worm his way into my car while I was enjoying the mossy cinders. You may need to click the photo to see him well.

I watched this little stowaway travel round & round for 15 minutes before I stopped the car at home, he was rather dazed and tired by the time I helped him off and into his new surroundings, but like the moss, plants and cinder blocks discovered in their journeys, home is where you find yourself, it happens true to nature.

From the doorstep

8 Apr

I walked a few miles yesterday on a local river floodplain and really enjoyed seeing many of my favorite wild plants I like to gather in their early development and some still sleeping, I was going to show these today but I think I’ll show just one and focus more on today.

First open the door, (step 2) take a step on to the step, (step 3) look around, (4) take a few photos. —-The river was low, so it is good to see snow.

Have a great day

wild wild horseradish

5 Apr

Wild horseradish couldn’t drag me away, because no matter what you may be thinking you can only be in the here and now, so don’t worry about staying in the now, truth is you can never physically or spiritually escape it. The physical and spiritual are just concepts appearing in the one or none if you like.

Where was I besides always here and now, oh yes. I stopped in on the ridge tonight to gather a few wild horseradish roots to transplant into my indicator garden, the ridge has several hundred wild horseradish plants there which may have been introduced to that area in the 1600s as a medicinal plant for the early settlers arriving from France and slightly later England in this area known as Beaubassin. I’m not going to mention recipes or anything, just wanted to share with you these photos of this beautifully gnarly wild plant.

Corralled into the new pasture this horseradish looks a bit like colossus dinosaur. Have a great long weekend

Wow what a now

27 Mar

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
