Patterns in nature
My granddaughter and I made peanut butter pine cones and she wanted to plant the leftover seeds. Amazingly, they are beginning to sprout in a pot by a window. Come on spring!!!!!! (Texture by Kim Klassen)
Fall is probably the best time of year to see saturated colors in nature. This one is from 2011. Even though I prefer summer and beaches, I do love all the color we get to see this time of year.
Last Saturday, we took a short hike to catch some of the fall colors and I saw this leaf that had both lines and patterns, as well as a little bit of fall color !
Impatiens flowers are pretty small but with a macro lens you can really get close and see the world in the center of the flower. It’s amazing how I could not see all of this with my eye, but through photography, we see something new. I think that’s why I used to love microscope work when I worked in the clinical laboratory many years ago.
These are also from my walk at lunch the other day. This is that ornamental grass that is used in a lot of landscaping. I don’t have a preferred orientation on these shots
Believe it or not this coreopsis flower is called Jethro Tull. Being a child of 60’s music I had to have one. Now all I need is the Beatles and the Moody Blues and my garden will be complete !!
