From Sublime to Silly

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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

    1. It is lovely. In Maine, January and February are typically cold, snowy months punctuated by bright sunny days.
