Out of Town

Song of Sharon

Song of Sharon

Nancy has given my good friend Don a 24 hour pass so he and I are leaving in an hour to an area in the mountains call Red Feather Lakes. We will spend the night at his cabin which is located along the shore of one of the seven lakes that make up the Red Feather Lakes area. We will get in some hiking, a little laughter while making bodily orifice sounds and solve a few of the world’s problems. A guy thing.  🙂

More Flowers

“Courage is not only the willingness to face uncertainty but to embrace it, to collaborate with it.” David duChemin 

Another image taken at the CSU Experimental Gardens. We have had overcast skies and a lite rain for the past few days. This brings cooler temperatureS and higher humidity, so this morning I’m wearing a jacket. Forecast is for the same weather the next four days.

It Was an Accident

Rose of Sharon

While wandering around the backyard of my sisters I decided to take an image of this Rose of Sharon. After pressing the shutter buton I noticed a pause in the camera and a message in my EVF that said saving. This is not normal. So after some troubleshooting I discovered I’d somehow moved the drive dial to Adv1 setting. This had placed to camera into creating an image to duplicate a toy camera. I liked how they adjusted the image. So, by accident I found something I will use in some situations. This the untouched image it produced.

“In the life of the Indian there is only one inevitable duty – the duty of prayer – the daily recognition of the Unseen and Eternal. He sees no need for setting apart one day in seven as holy days, since to him all days are God’s.” Ohiyesa, Santee Dakota

A Day at the Gardens

A Day in the Gardens

A Day in the Gardens

“I don’t believe in an outside agent that creates the world, then walks away. But I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body. And it is that intelligence that, I wouldn’t say created the universe. It is creating the universe. It’s an ongoing process.” Eckhart Tolle

Brown Edges

Fading Away

Brown Edges 

The brown color of this leaf’s edges was the key to drawing my attention to it. My first thought was a dead leaf that had fallen and was mixed in with the greener leaves. But as I looked closer I realized it was only the edges of the leaf that were discolored.  

My inquisitive mind wanted to know why this was happening, so a Google search was made and the following was discovered. Most commonly brown leaf tips or brown edges on leaves are caused by stress. This can be due to the plant not getting enough water, too little natural water falling, the roots are constricted and unable to reach out for water or the soil does or can not hold onto the water. Even though the plant is in stress I find beauty in it. I also find it interesting only one leaf is affected.
