Taking a Stroll around the Grounds

June 16, 2019

Yesterday I followed and unfollowed paths around my immediate neighborhood. I found baby oak leaves overlooking tall grasses; a willow tree behind goldenrod plants and before cattails sprinkled with pseudacris; a path through a wooded area dotted with daisies; very young films of Leptothrix discophora, some in front of a small outcrop of sedge; a duckweed-covered pond rising to meet hanging branches of another oak tree; and more duckweed in a different pond in the rain. I also took another stab at Intentional Camera Movement.

The Back Pond (August 2017)

September 29, 2017

The Back Pond at Schoepfle Garden has fascinated me for years. It’s where I have captured reflections of the surrounding woods in all seasons. This summer, however, the park people installed one of those terrible aerator rings, which shoots up water in a constant disruption of natural surface variations. When I visited last month, I was lucky enough to be there when the thing was turned off.

Fishy, Fishy

November 5, 2016

This is just one of the schools I frightened on my wade across the river last month. I’d never seen so many fish in one place.

And here’s a website to go with yesterday’s Bubble, Bubble post: Shows you how high-cultured I am.

Besides fall foliage reflected in the river, a few other sights vied for my attention last month at Schoepfle Garden. Here is another shale-gas bubble, found near the ones I showed in July.

The mushrooms shown in yesterday’s post were a few yards from Schoepfle Garden’s Back Pond, which I’ve shown you many times. Here it is again, reflecting our fall foliage.

I apologize. I wrote and scheduled yesterday’s blog post before I returned to my haul to see if there might be more there that I’d like to share. Then I forgot to remove my note from the post. Here’s the beginning of more in this series.
