Local conditions brought to you by true nature

26 Mar

A pheasant rain was observed under cloudy  marshland skies for most of the day.

Temperatures plummeted in late afternoon with confers donning their white winter coats one more time.

Some rosy red ones were all a glow as seen from the ridge.

Enough already about, plants and creatures, lets give it up for the ground without which we would probably have fins not that that’s a bad thing. Back to the land, this place has the nick name the chocolate river.

and for dessert another sweet peek at the chocalatey one. Hope you all enjoyed your local conditions, cheers for being here.

The yard will never be the same

23 Mar

The yard, always in transition though not one atom ever separated from true nature. All in one.

wild rose,  vitamin C rich rose hips, ripe seeds, rested roots will soon spring new growth on these stems.

Live forever or Orpine, this plant’s leaves are a good salad green from May through August when growing in shady river intervals, these ones are tiny once you notice the maple seed in this photo, these resemble miniature cabbage, they are located near our patio.

Stinging Nettle, covered by some silver maple leaves in my indicator garden, nettles seem to make every one around them a little healthier.

Caraway, is a very self sufficient character around here, it is our rabbits favorite treat next to raisins.

Sweet cicely, also does very well. I’m adding 2 photos to my (image page) tonight, if you like colorful mushrooms check them out they are called Blewit (Lepista nuda) and I’ve introduced them to my indicator garden last fall, so they may appear here next Oct.

You all come back now you here.
