Wonders in Nature

    I have lots of rocks in the house and many many more edging the gardens in my backyard.

Most were picked for their shape, color and design.

This rock “bowl” holds water and attracts birds. It also reflects any nearby plants.

 Any water movement in this “bowl” reflects small objects, clouds, nearby plants,

and clouds in the sky.

A light wind moves the reflections of a nearby vine.

“Blue Crystal and other Discoveries

A “blue crystal” … I’m not sure what the light’s reflecting from.

This piece of wood’s mostly covered with a variety of lichens and a couple of teeny pale red mushrooms.

A yellow-bellied sapsucker went first to the pine tree. You can tell the holes they drill by the way they’re in straight and horizontal lines. Sap flows from the holes and the sap suckers feed on it.

Clouds also add a variety of their shapes

Spring’s slowly arriving, and the spiders are already beginning to work on their small

 and large webs.

Sky Variations

Some cloud “shows” are too fascinating miss.

Some move faster than others.

There can be “mountains,”

and distant “hills.”

Looks like this one wants to definitely be seen.

 The sunlit edge of the cloud adds variety to the gathering clouds.

The clouds start gathering and look like they’re trying to fill the sky.

These pictures were taken earlier in the summer.

Cloudy Sky

                                                                                                                                 It’s rare that the sky’s boring.

The clouds and jet trails have been varied lately.

                                                                                         There’s usually a wide variety of clouds and an occasional contrail.

An occasional jet adds a different pattern to the early evening.

It’s easy to tell which is a jet contrail and which is a cloud from a jet contrail earlier.

Sky and Low Clouds

The clouds seemed more active near the end of November than they do now (The first part of January).

                                                                                                      We’ve had very little sunshine so far this winter.

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?

 

What a Sunset!

We live on the east side of the highway,

with a large field across the highway in the west.

We’ve practically had large billowing clouds almost daily for several weeks.

Most lingered into the evening.

They constantly changed shapes and reflected the colors.

The changing colors put on a dramatic show.

I took all these (and more) pictures from our front yard.

I wonder what to expect this evening.
