Sunset in Historic Area

It was sundown after a storm and I was crossing the street, and there were these beautiful images at the green - people on the sidewalk just stopped and stared.






Artistic Beach Grass

My vacation doesn't start until I get in the ocean, and soon after I did that this year, I came upon this seagrass by the boardwalk, and something about the curve and the lighting and the texture of the seed heads grabbed my attention, so I snapped a few pictures.  We all really liked the way this one came out. 

Frozen Swirls

First walk of spring(ish) and near our middle school - I was struck by these frozen ripples, which I assume formed as this puddle cycled through freezing and melting and freezing again.








A little further down the road, the water had sharp shapes in it, as well as the swirls!

Crystals or bubbles or amber?

Looks like rocks or bubbles, or maybe amber with little bugs caught in it, right? Not a mystery for long, I just loved the way this Italian salad dressing looked sitting on the table with the dining room overhead light shining through it.  I moved it to the kitchen where I could make the light brighter.  I like the glow.

Here is another view:

Green Whale Skin?

Today I harvested our butternut squash, acorn squash, some new yellow beans and green beans, and three cucumbers.  As soon as I saw the cucumbers under the leaves, I thought wow, that looks just like the skin of a whale, weathered by the sea and with barnacles on it!
