plant architecture

except the bottom photo is from my friend Dane's tree. It is being destroyed by sapsuckers. This is the pattern they leave on the branch. I always thought they were okay until Dane showed me. tree killers.

this is what is burning in Russia

(viewed 1008 times)
Sphagnum moss builds up in bogs for years, centuries, forming layers of peat underground. Peat burns slowly and with a log of smoke. Peat fires are very hard to put out because the fire travels underground. Hoping for big rain in Russia.

Since June, it has been disgustingly hot and humid and polluted. It does not end. I just needed a little snow memory today.

Ramona is here

(viewed 915 times)
We've been waiting for Ramona for a while and she finally arrived. Oscar thinks being a big brother is pretty good, so far. Our family has always been boys. As her uncle Andy said, 'A girl? What do we know about girls? What do we do with her?' Ramona is two days old, and she's a champion sleeper. I think she's terrific.

moth on flower

(viewed 1460 times)
Orange-patched Smoky Moth -- Pyromorpha dimidiata on Liatris cylindricea. I know nothing about insects, except there are an awful lot of them involved with plants so I better get used to them. This moth and I spent a lovely evening hanging around the liatris so I photographed it. I even found its name by pure chance.

it's a swamp, it's a swamp rose

Up until now, I had never seen a swamp rose, Rosa palustris, but now I have.

I'm trying to get my mojo back, trying to find the zen of it all.
