As I was finishing up with the watering this evening, I happened to glance over at the empty field that’s a part of the farm, but isn’t currently being used for anything. Last year there was a man who kept his cows there, but rumor is he moved away. It would make a fantastic dog park, and the idea has been brought up to the people in charge.
Today though, it was full of dandelion fluffs, and with the sun setting behind it, they were all like little lights, shining away.
This dandelion looked lovely with the setting sun behind it.
I was out at the farm as the sun was setting, checking on my new little garden.
The moon is out, and the sky is clear, so I had to get a few photos in.
This was taken with my 55-200mm lens, and I wish I had something stronger!
And then I cropped the photo when I got back home.
Of course, since we had a serious cloud cover the other night when the meteor shower took place, I wasn’t able to get any shots then. But this guy is pretty impressive too.
I’m curious how the shower looked to the folks who could see it. Did the moon distract since it was pretty full on Sunday?
I also found this barbed wire interesting, as I was driving away from the farm. I should have taken this when the sun was a tad bit higher in the sky, but, live and learn, right?
Nevertheless I’m thinking this might look neat on a pillow…whatdaya think?
*Post Script* So I went ahead and posted this as a pillow on Society6! You can see it here: http://society6.com/AbraAlani/Barbed-Wire-on-the-Farm_Pillow
Don’t you just love cumulus clouds at sunset?
I’m pretty sure 94.9% of photographers found a daffodil to take a photo of today, it being the first day of spring and all. But seriously, in this area, they are EVERYWHERE! It’s quite nice, actually.
I also went down to Tacoma tonight for a bit of a girl’s night, and when we first arrived to the restaurant I couldn’t help but sit staring out the window at the lovely view.
I SHOULD have gotten my coat and scarf back on and actually walked outside, but it was so bitterly windy, and I sort of like the reflection effect here.
Just a little sunset by the lake this evening. Not warm yet, but not as completely freezing as it has been lately! Just enough to get me outside to see the pretty sky.
Whew! Two months down!
Just ten more to go, haha. :)
I participated in a themed session today within the fPoe group, titled “1300 my time” which is a tough one for me, because I’m typically heading into work at that time.
I found this small pod hanging in the woods near the library. I’m calling this “The Makings of a Tree”
I find that it does help me to have a goal, even one so broad as today’s, to keep me focused. I’m better at finding new subject matter if I have some minor guidance to get me there.
And we had a brief (VERY brief) respite from the rain today with this glimpse of sunshine near the end of the day.
Toby and I found this while out walking.
Along the bottom it says “Fittings that Fit!” …I guess it fit so well it that it fell off and landed where we found it…
In search of a good place to both walk the dog and enjoy the scenery, we ended up at Dash Point State Park just as the sun was setting.
A beautiful, clear day out at Point Defiance in Tacoma, Washington
