Bright and Smiling

 
The day was bright and I am smiling. Spent almost all of the time I was awake working on book formatting. That accomplishment report is over at the author blog. But I took a nice walk in the middle to stretch my muscles.

There's a little pond at the corner of First Street and Gordon Road. Sun on water sure looks good even if the water is small.

Found one plant trying to get with the springtime program. This is Vinca, myrtle, periwinkle.... whatever you call it.

Just a closeup of some bark on a Scots pine.

I caught this sight out of the corner of an eye and then worked to save it with the camera. The sunlight was making some of the twigs glow if you looked at it just right. They look like ice! I always like something a tiny bit different.

And then, there are always the beech leaves that hang on throughout the winter. I love how they are so pale and papery. I just find them attractive.

Fairly productive for a Saturday. I think I'm taking the party to bed really soon.
