Arrow Clouds

I was infatuated when I saw these clouds. Their shape slightly resembled an arrow.

 It would be interesting to know how the “arrow” formed … the wind would be involved.

How can one cloud be reversed from the neighboring one?

Smokey Morning

We neglected the woody growth on the south side of the house for several years.The area turned into a dense jungle. . . which we didn’t like.

Ron cut and cut for days, dug out stumps and moved rocks too. My husband started at one end of the “jungle” and

worked his way to the west. It took quite a while. Needless to say, he got a LOT of exercise.

By then I was tired and went in the house to watch from there.

The smoke was mesmerizing.

A New Fungi

I found this fungus growing on a dead branch in a thicket in our yard.

I was able to identify it online as a corticioid fungi.

What little information was way over my head! Not knowing any more in no way detracts from my enjoyment of the find.

Variations Spider Silk

Activities slow as winter approaches.  The spiders still let out silk for webs later in the day.

The transparent “line” is a strand of silk let out by a spider. The spiders usually don’t widen the silk strands like this one did. The back lightning highlights the colors.
