Swan and State


I love this tree.  Every year it puts on a show.  Some years it's blaze orange, some years it's poor Macbeth's incarnadine.  I hear that line every time I see these two trees together.  One is always in colour before the rest.

The photo isn't my best; I was walking the dogs and they don't like to stand still.  In fact, they don't like to stand at all - pulling their leashes violin-string tight is more their style!  But I liked the framing of the trees between the telephone poles.

Skywatch Friday


A group of photobloggers post a photo of their skies each Friday - it's called Skywatch Friday. Click the link to see photos from round the world.



This cloud was almost exactly over my house; I don't often get to see sunbeams and this was quite a treat.  The birds flying by were a bonus!

Bee in oregano flowers

This bee was taking advantage of the many wild oregano flowers.  These smell like oregano; I wonder what her honey tastes like?

Field of purple...

...oregano!

This is wild oregano, growing in the grass in Vale Cemetery.  It's quietly beautiful and unexpected.

Red, white and... blue?

OK, so the ripe mulberry fruit is purple.  It's a really, really dark blue!  This particular specimen stands outside my front door, in exactly the same spot where an old maple tree stood.  I don't know how this one got started - I'm guessing it was a bird.  No silkworms though.
