The other day, when I came home from doing errands, our yard was filled with the beautiful light that comes just before dusk. Time to take some pictures On one side of our driveway is the forest, and it was awash in the golden glow of the setting sun.
On the other side of our driveway is our small front yard. Last fall, I left a few of the sturdier ornaments in the garden, and there they were, just peeking over the deep snow.
From sublime to silly all in the same yard. Sometimes, point of view depends upon which way you look.

I love your trees! We have more oaks and a few pines and some little spruces and a lot of a kind of tree that I am somehow not able to identify. It grows with oaks, has whitish slightly hanging flowers and solid nuts that are green when they fall and dark inside. It is not a kind of nut that looks good for people to eat although the squirrles seemto enjoy, and I am stumped. Online has not been able to help me either.
Thanks! We have a lot of coniferous trees in our forest. I am baffled by your description of the tree that grows with oaks. Hope you find out what it is.
I thought I would be able to figure it out easily, and yet can’t. I even tried to look it up by leaf shape, all the details one would put online in a tree data base. Oh well–maybe next year!
I love the little flying pig emerging from that pristine snow! The light through the snowy trees is indeed glorious.
Pretty silly pig! And not far away, those snow trees.
You put it so well.
The light through the trees is just perfect! The contrast of light and shadows is even more important in the winter. Thanks.
Oh, the lighting WAS beautiful! We’ve recently had quite a few times where I said to the world at large, “Oh, look at that light!” But I didn’t grab my camera – Bravo to you, Laurie.
I love the shining white snow through the trees & the flying pig reaching out of the snow..
Fun, isn’t it?
Beautiful, always love your posts.I have nominated you for “The Sunshine Bloggers Award”, here is the link. https://ramblingsofawriter2016.com/2018/02/11/the-sunshine-blogger-award-2018/
So pretty – the low sun through the trees is a favorite time of day for me.
Beautiful – whichever way you look
Love the light this time of year and so nice to capture the beauty of those trees, lovely
Yes, yes! Many thanks!
The mid-winter light has been wonderful recently. -Oscar
I do love the flying pig, Laurie! There was an old time music band out here called “When Picks Fly”. Their logo was a pick with wings. 🙂
Not a drop of snow here yet this season!
Thanks, Lavinia. A present from my mother. I’m very fond of him.
J > Oh I do wish we had just a bit of winter like yours. For a few days, anyway! It does look lovely.
It is lovely. In Maine, January and February are typically cold, snowy months punctuated by bright sunny days.
That’s why, if I do evere get to visit the USA, it’s New England – and Maine in particular – where I want to spend time. For now I make do with Google Earth, Wikipedia, and blogs like yours!
So wonderful to get to know places through blogging friends.
Thanks so much!
And both are appreciated! I especially like that first image, Laurie.
The pig seems to have concluded the odds are stronger than ever against it flying and has decided to spend the day singing instead.
