The wind was blowing the flowers and leaves around in almost constant gusts of 20 to 30 MPH the other day. Walking Sophie and Tucker I thought, “Another no picture day.”
As the wind blew against us another thought crossed my mind, “Why? There are plenty of non-moveable things to photograph.
Like these locust pods tucked deep into our windbreak.
I sort of fell in love with lichens when I learned a long time ago that hummingbirds sometimes decorate their nests with them. (See this link: https://www.thespruce.com/all-about-hummingbird-nests-386644) Each tiny piece is intentionally placed.
This knot where a branch once grew caught my attention briefly because, by this time, I was a woman with a cell phone camera on a mission!
This new tree growing on the crook of an old tree got me to pondering about lots of things. Like the way I grow from the messes people older than me have experienced.
This pile of debris that seemed so out of place but was actually in the right place at the right time.
And these two . . . this robust tangle barely moved in the wind it was so well attached to a well-attached vine.
And this little one that I thought was a wasted photo because surely it moved in the wind, but it too was well anchored. Lots of life lessons there.
And here’s a bit of new on the old again. A gentle lesson in the making.
These guys reminded me of tomatoes – this is just the way my mind works.
These berries hidden deep in the back of the bush made me wonder who they might be meant for.
I thought, “Oh a grape and a raisin” even though I know it’s a Virginia Creeper berry.
These small honey locust leaves are favorites and I may have smiled out loud when . . .
I found a cascade of them!
Sophie and Tucker were tired of photo stops and I got two of “those” looks and a couple of doggie sighs. Plus, my phone had just warned me that the battery was almost done, and the thunder rumbled a lot closer. I was certain it was time to go in, but something told me to look again. That’s when I realized God had saved the best for last!
Doesn’t this bug look like he’s wearing a mask on his back starting with orange eyes?
So you sometimes see things in the objects around you? Or in these photos? Let me know in the comments.
Until Next Time,
