It's not everyday that you walk through the woods and find a blue leave. Blue on only one side that is. Here's my thoughts on how it got it's beautiful color. Somewhere, someone was about to dig for some reason and called to have the utility lines identified. Out comes the guy with his spray cans and marks where the lines are. If I'm not mistaken blue signifies a water line. The wind comes up (we've certainly had plenty of that this week) and sends this leaf sailing through the woods to where I found it. This is one thought although as far as I know, no one has painted anything around here in the middle of the woods. Mr. H says he's seen leaves that have stood in stagnant water take on a bluish tone. This seems more like it, but honestly I'm not too concerned why it's blue. I'm just delighted that I saw it on my walk. I think it's another little wink from God to make me smile!
Random Facts from these week
I've taken numerous pictures of this covered bridge and they're all different. The light shines different, the water reflections are different, and this time, it's sporting a new paint job!
My sister has moved close to me and now we can finally enjoy more photo excursions together. We spent the morning at a park and look what we found. This c. 1849 cabin was built by John Christian Heilman, one of the first settlers in this area of Arkansas. Legend has it that he built the structure from hand-hewn logs salvaged from the first Arkansas territorial governor's mansion.
Everywhere you go you can find liter that some careless person has left behind! Are you old enough to remember the commercial about littering where the Indian Chief had a tear rolling down his cheek because we care so little for our land? Anyway, at least it was a pretty piece of liter!
You can find the most interesting textures on trees. But, if I were you, I wouldn't touch this one. I thinks it's poison ivy!!
You know spring is here when you see bees on flowers. This is one of my King Alfred Jonquils. It's about twice the size as a regular jonquil.
That's it for this week!
May you have a lovely weekend!
