Morning, Sunshine!

its a nice day outside but a friend got some hard news yesterday so it’s probably appropriate that there’s rain on the ground and the clouds are trying but failing to cover up the sun this morning because that’s my friend we’re talking about here.

Beauty-full

My parents recently had their anniversary, and my dad found a place that sells roses at a reasonable price, and he got my mom one rose for every year they’ve been married. They’ve blossomed well.

One for every year

There is a leaf on the ground near their home that is on fire, and I grabbed a photo of it today after looking at it there for the past week. The fact that nobody picked it up to save it yet was startling. I hope other people notice it.

Outdoors

This morning I walked outside and wished I could take a picture of the sound of the leaves rustling on a tree nearby. It struck me that it was a bit late in the season for there to still be leaves. I wonder if that’s because of the type of tree it is? I’ve not noticed it before.

I did find two things to take photos of. One seems almost unreal, like a silk plant. They look like mulberries, although quite out of season in late December. The other is a favorite type of photo of mine to take – branches against the sky. I’m not sure why I take so many of this kind of photo, but I tend to. I hope you enjoy!
