Photos fom my wanderings

Late afternoon light is magic
Being as we have been experiencing gray and rainy days, I can feel the warmth in this picture!

Skunk cabbage, yep it does smell odd and strong!

Young Tamerack Cone
There is great wonder for me in witnessing a tree bare of leaves for six months begin to sprout soft needles and cones.

  2. Beautiful photos. The first one, the sun in the pines, touched something deep in me: timelessness? The inevitability that things will work out, nature will go on . . . And good old skunk cabbage. This would be the western variety; I’m used to the eastern skunk cabbage which is more purple in colour. Brings back memories of youth . . .

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. The tamaracks or mountain larches are very interesting in how they lose their needles for the winter. I love it when they change their colours from green into fiery orange in the fall.

    Oh, and I love the smell of skunk cabbage, and even skunks. I find it stimulating.
