Outside in…the Last Six Months

Outside in…the Last Six Months

Yikes! It’s been six months since my last outside photo post! What happened?!

Let’s play a little catch-up, and look at some of my favorite outside photos of the past six months. (And if you want to see last October’s, it’s actually a “Field Trip” post.)

Here’s November of 2021 through April of 2022. Enjoy!

Outside in September

Outside in September

I can’t believe it’s already the end of September! I’m both really sad to see summer go (warm weather! fun outdoor adventures!), but am also excited for the cooler weather of fall and all the beauty of the changing leaves. Summer is dreamy in this part of Massachusetts, but fall seems to have been tailor-made for New England. Here are some pictures of the last bits and pieces of summer. Enjoy!

Are you familiar with foxglove AKA spotted touch-me-not? It’s a really beautiful plant. The “touch-me-not” part of its common name comes from the seed pods. You can see one on the left–it’s green and skinny. If you squeeze one lightly, it springs open, shooting the seeds out! It doesn’t shoot them out hard enough to hurt, just to scatter them around. Check it out.

There are three little seeds, although I don’t know if that’s always the case. The seed pod goes from straight, to all curled up after springing open. Here’s one more picture with the different sides of the seed pod separated out.

See the little curly-q’s? Isn’t that interesting?

The shape of these goldenrod buds is so cool! I keep stopping to look at them!

Sometimes I like pictures with a clear focal point, but sometimes I like pictures that present a sort of overall design, a lot like fabric does.

Here’s another “all over” design.

I really hope you had a good summer. I’ll be back soon, hopefully, to share my last summer sewing projects with you–I managed to squeeze a few in. They were so much fun to make–and even more fun to wear!

It’s been a winter wonderland out there this month! I got out a few times and captured some of the gorgeous snow and even a few pictures of birds eating out of my hand! It was amazing! Have a look.

Look at this little Black Capped Chickadee! Isn’t it cute?

Here’s a Red-Breasted Nuthatch. Feel free to correct me in the comments if I have my bird names wrong. 🙂

We fed a Tufted Titmouse as well, but it was so shy, that I never got any pictures. That’s a bird, by the way, and not a mouse, although we did see a mouse.

I love, love, love bright and vibrant colors, but I have to say–I find this fall palette that nature puts on to be so beautiful. Even among the brown grasses and leaves on gray days, there is so much variation and beauty. But don’t worry–there are still a few sunny and bright pictures in here, too. Enjoy!

Outside in March

Here are some pictures from earlier this month–the last official dregs of winter.  This season usually holds on with an iron grip as hard as the frozen ground in New England.  It tries to last as long as possible, but this winter wasn’t as cold and snowy as usual, so I have hope for some kind of spring if we’re lucky this year.  Take heart–spring really is coming…and there is hope.

I love the aqua color of that boat (third from the left).

This picture (above) makes me feel like I’ve found a secret cove.  It wasn’t really secret, but I like that it gives me that feeling.

A Day Late and a Dollar Short: Outside in February

A Day Late and a Dollar Short:  Outside in February

After missing a few weeks of posts, it’s time to get back to it.  We’ve had school vacation, family visiting, and, what held me up most of all, a complicated project that took forever to finish.  I could have kicked myself earlier this week when I realized that last week’s post was meant to be a photography post and I actually had pictures for it.  So, since I missed that post and my latest project isn’t photographed yet, I’m sharing February’s outside pictures this first Friday of March.  It’s interesting to see the many colors (neutral colors, but colors nonetheless) in winter.  Hopefully next week I’ll have a sewing post for you.

I managed to get my camera between this marsh grass and the ice on top of it to get this picture (above).  It’s interesting to imagine the whole world that exists between the mud beneath the grass and the ice above it.

Have a good weekend!
