You're right! You can walk on it!


While the ducks in the foreground are dabbling for food where they can, Henry and Matilda are standing on the ice.

The duck wonders why...?

... he can stand on the water!

What's the matter Henry? Cold feet?

Henry and Matilda, skirting the ice on the lake...

In perfect stillness...

... except for the occasional  quack, honk, or caw, and the crunch of our footsteps.

Wherever you are...

I hope that in your heart you are home for Christmas.  Merry Christmas!

Just above the water...



More sun and less snow... The Great Blue Heron flies just above the water, still searching.

The Great Blue Heron...


... still out looking for dinner.

Still thankful...


It's Thanksgiving in the USA-- And even if you're not here, I hope you have a good day with much to be thankful for.   I am thankful that we can touch each others' lives.

Flammable Fungus!

An incredible bright orange-red flower?  No, an incredible bright orange-red fungus lighting up the meadow!

We'll be back in the Spring...

The water lilies and other water plants sink back into the lake for their long winter's swim.  They'll be back in the Spring!

Cool air, crunching leaves, smoke from a welcoming fireplace...


... and somewhere in your heart, your mother is calling you home for dinner.
