Bye-Bye, Oberlin

December 11, 2017

I had a little time November 28 before I had to leave on the first leg of my journey south for (most of) the winter. Walking the three or four minutes over to Rock Pond, I found some cattails hit by early morning light.

Rock Pond Sparkles

November 24, 2016

Sunshine and warm weather last Friday made returning to Rock Pond and Wildflower Hill imperative. Good thing I went. Snow and cold hit the next day. But don’t look forward to photographs of snow just yet. I was too chicken to get out in the freezing weather with the camera. Maybe I’ll be braver with the next snowfall. . . . With the following photograph I now have a series on sparking water. See also the posts of  May 15 and August 29.

On October 31 I walked past Rock Pond on my way to Wildflower Hill. The marshmallows were reduced to sticks, but very nice sticks.

Made another foray to Rock Pond and Wildflower Hill early Monday evening. These are Marsh Mallows (Althaea officinalis) growing around the rim of the pond. And, yes, they are related to the marshmallows that you roast over a campfire. To quote Wikipedia: “A confection made from the root since ancient Egyptian time evolved into today’s marshmallow treat.” The second photo is a detail of the first.

Home Sweet Home (Hello) 1

Last evening I took a two-minute walk to the nearest of several ponds that we share with neighbors at our new place. I could hear the bullfrogs and another frog whose sound we didn’t hear at the pond at our old place—or was that the mallards quacking?

Home Sweet Home (Goodbye) 1

June 20, 2016

As we get ready to leave the house and land we’ve lived in and on for 26 years, I know there are some things I will miss when we go. How good to have these photographs to remind me of sunrises I can see from my kitchen window, sunsets over the pond, and the way light patterns the interior of the house. (Remember that clicking on an image gives you a larger version.)
