Old and New

Now that the snow is gone and the yard is drying enough to walk in after heavy rain recently, I was out and about to find some of those interesting (to me, and I hope you) things that catch my camera’s eye.

Mosses on an rotting log

Mosses on an rotting log

Cones and needles under a tall pine tree

Cones and needles under a tall pine tree

Green mosses in a shady spot

Green mosses in a shady spot

Rainer Maria Rilke – Early Spring

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.
