Apple Blossoms

It’s looking like another good year for wild apples this time around. Many of the wild trees on our property have had a great bloom. More cider in our futures!

In the woods

A little experimentation with motion blur in the Audubon Nature Center woods this morning…

Barbed

While walking in the woods above Fargo Brook the other day, I came across quite a bit of this unusual flat-twisted barbed wire. I hadn’t come across it before.

Gold and copper

Beech trees are some of the late fall holdouts—keeping a tenacious grip on their leaves sometimes all the way through the winter. I love the way their leaves shift from green to gold to copper and then, sometimes, to ghostly bleached white in the wintertime.

Willow Burst

This variety of willow (that I’m not entirely sure of…) is one of my favorite early spring “poppers”. Its tight catkins burst into fireworks-like explosions of fuzzy yellow wonderfulness.

The willows along our neighbor’s fenceline are popping! I caught this trio in between rain showers this afternoon.
