Posts under ‘friday photos’


A week ago I saw the first tiny snowdrop shoot. Hooray! By Saturday afternoon, it had many companions. The little green shoots continued to emerge, but it was a bit hard to tell in Wednesday’s sleet. And this morning? They’re under there somewhere. I hope.

Friday the thirteenth

I’m confused. Wednesday: record-breaking 64F temperatures. Thursday: 50 mile an hour winds. Friday: snow. But I saw the first tiny snowdrop shoot this morning, so perhaps it will settle down into spring sooner rather than later. The peanut gallery has been clamoring for a return of Friday photos. A quick dig in the archives found […]

Good morning

Nothing new on the string front I’m afraid – too much working for a living. This sunrise is from yesterday morning while heading to work. I didn’t even have time to post a photo!

Astronomy is right

Apparently it really is spring now. It was sunny this morning, so I went to check on the cute little crocus. It has many friends now. On my way to the crocus patch, this was the first thing I saw. I had to hunt a bit for its likely companion in the front bed – […]

Friday photo

I was saving this one for autumn, then forgot about it. We’re now past this seasonal stage, and well into snow. I hope you enjoy it anyway – this is one of my favorites. As a special bonus, I’ll also continue the “socks at work” series. These are my first socks, nice toasty wool-blend, and […]
