Last Day of 2007

This is where our normal afternoon walk starts during the winter. From here, we walk up to the upper pasture.

A little fern trying its best to split a boulder. Given enough time and help from other plants and the elements, it will succeed.

Leaves in the little winter creek right behind the house. Oh, how I wish this little creek flowed year round.

Real nice photos, Marvin.

I especially like the fern growing in the crevice. I think it is inspiring how nature takes advantage of less-than-ideal conditions and still manages to flourish. You could make one of those motivational posters out of that pic, and call it "Flexibility." :)

Tom: Here's hoping you and yours also have a great 2008. Sorry to hear you began the new year confined inside.


Ron: Sometimes we have to really struggle getting plants to grow and thrive in the best locations we have to offer. Then you find plants that seem to be doing just find in the most difficult locations. I cannot explain nature, just observe and marvel at her abilities.
