I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving day! Ours was nice, but very busy. After an unexpected snow squall last night, today is so mild and beautifl, I almost forgot it is almost December! I spent a few delightful moments in my garden enjoying the fragrances of my herbs. It's amazing how uplifting that can be!
And now, as promised in my Close-ups post, here are some nature photos I've taken over the last couple of years. Again, not anything professional, but we do have some beautiful scenery, and I love to take pictures! Sorry that the pictures aren't in any sort of order. I was going to organize them, but the computer is being so slow today, I just gave up!
Here is a beautiful sunset we had after a rather dreary rainy day...
A maple tree on our road, lit up at sunset...
When we got this camera, my sister and I were amazed at its zooming power, and had a lot of fun photographing the moon!
These are probably some of my favorites...this was a very cold morning last February. There was hoarfrost on everything, the sun was shining...it was just beautiful! I took the camera and went cross-country skiing!
A moose crossing the potato field early in April. I wish I had brought the camera with me on a run last month, because there was a huge bull moose crossing this same field! They are particularly impressive in the Fall, when they have their antlers.
Some pictures of Mt. Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine. One day I hope to climb it!
An attempted close-up of the Knife's Edge, taken from the scenic lookout on I 95...
My sister took this picture a few weeks ago from the road. I was amazed at how well it came out!
Lupines bloom along the roadsides here in June...
A wall cloud over the potato field last summer...
The view at the end of our road after a shower. That's broccoli growing in the field.
Typical scene at the end of the road in winter. This was actually was taken late March after a very mild winter!
A beautiful October day...
A couple more sunsets. I think my sister may have taken the first one.
The snow was piled so high we could no longer see the field last February!
Harvesting oats in the field next to us...
And thats it for now! Going through all these pictures, I realized I have quite a few pictures of my four energetic golden retrievers that are cute, and some are very comical! So I may share those with you sometime in the near future, even though this is supposed to be a GARDENING blog!
