late to the party




This is what the snow last week did to all the bradford pear trees (of which there are many).




looking out over the 13 acre field


The last three days have been foggy, all day foggy with mist and drizzling.  Today was merely overcast but colder.  I can’t remember when I last saw the sun.  I am ready to have a sunny day.  The cat is ready to have a sunny day.  She goes from door to door looking for the one that leads to sunny and dry.  I know how she feels.





All this wet weather has brought some strange things out of the ground.


I have to make another foray into the city tomorrow.  I left, even after we went back on Monday, some crucial things I need to work on each job.  I mean, what are the odds?  Three jobs, three seperate things forgotten that prevent me from working on any of it.

  1. The pear tree is gorgeous. We have had a boatload of fog here too in the mornings for the last few days - it is beautiful in a creepy kind of way :)

    [and I agree with Nancy - what IS that?]

  4. I fear that when you get back from the city, with all your fog and rain, you may not recognize the place! Very atmospheric, though.

  5. The wet red things turned out to be mushrooms when the fully emerged, but I have never seen red mushrooms before.

  6. Ah. A sign to chill out? Well, maybe.

    Are those mushrooms? Wow.

    We don't get a lot of fog here, so I enjoy it when it happens, but like you, I need sunshine or I begin to shrivel.

  9. The colors on your pear tree are beautiful. I am surprised that it still has so many leaves left in mid-December though.

  10. Those are mushrooms? Ew.

    I love the fog, but not for days on end. Luckily, the sun always shows up around here after a spell.

  16. I have seen several brilliantly orange trees like the one you show here and even mentioned it to my husband. I've lived here for 3 or 4 falls and winters now and don't remember seeing that happen. It looks like peak season in the northeast, the kind of thing people travel from all over to see. Stunning!
