November Nature Desktop Calendar: The Bench

I took a photo of this brilliant scene years ago, one of the first photos I took with my brand hew Pentax K1000 film camera. A couple of decades later I was surprised one autumn morning to see it wasn’t terribly different. I pulled the original photo and saw the trees hadn’t quite grown in […]

October Nature Desktop Calendar: The Lichen Tree

What treasures we find if we only turn and look. Is that awesome or what? There are so many colors of leaves in this one small area, but the lichen tree, as I named it, is actually completely dead and bare, is what really makes it for me. The sun had been covered by overcast […]

After my first trip […]

July Nature Desktop Calendar: Geraniums and Parsley

An artist in one of the groups I post in said she could feel the “absolute joy” in this painting. Yes, the exuberance of nature on a beautiful summer day, and my joy at even just a little bit of life and color to be inspired by in the year I didn’t have a garden. […]
