Celebrating our Earth


we call them Yellow Bells
they grow in prairie land

I live in the forest and mountains
so it is always a journey to see them


some have red rings around them
some do not


on my way to look for flowers
I stopped in a forest
and found this beautiful rock
I am told that copper makes these color


I have been exploring the tiny world of lichen and moss
often raindrops are involved


I noticed that teeny tiny moss had little egg shaped capsules
a new sighting:


a closer glimpse:


our amazing planet
endless intriguing life to explore
enjoy
respect
and 
learn from

Happy Earth Day!
(everyday)

  12. Dear Tammie - I love all your findings. To me, Yellow Bell looks like symbol of peace, love, and a guardian of ecosystem. Egg-shaped capsule of moss is quite new to me. What with raindrops more beautiful than jewels and with the color made by coper, this world is filled with wonders. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Hello dear Tammie,
    Sorry I don't comment on your lovely blog as often as I would wish, but I travel a lot, it keeps my mind nicely busy.
    This post is real marvel but so is most of what you show us :)
    This planet is indeed truly amazing and let's hope humans won't destroy it completely...
    Your photos are magnificently presented: beautifully framed and built.
    Warm hugs and take care :)

  20. All so beautiful Tammie ...the macro shots are especially intriguing...you really slowed down and found the hidden beauty under your feet ... I love that! So many people are in such a hurry they miss all the beauty. The prairie yellow bell is great too... worth the journey...thanks for sharing all!
