    These are so cool, Jessica! I especially like the leaves in the water and the tiny flowers.

      Hi. Thanks so much. There’s a walking path around the park and soccer fields. Next to the walking bridge over some clear water, I found these treasures. Thanks for your kind words. :)

        You have a gift for spotting out of the ordinary things in familiar settings. Good powers of observation!

      Hey girl, I’m glad you like them. I ducked under some trees to all of them except the birch. Gifts all around.

      Do you have them in Maine?

        • Jessica February 21, 2017 / 5:20 pm

          Off to Google again! Ha! I don’t think I’ve seen those before. :)

            Oh man!! That’s SO cool!!

            Now there’s some history! The article I was reading mentioned the 1600’s. Pretty neat that they make things out of those birch trees.

            I looked up white, paper, and grey. Those are really neat. The paper especially.

      Hey sweetie. That was an incredibly wonderful comment. Thank you so much. My dad told me recently that I see things others wouldn’t even notice. Love that. :) Thank you. I finally got brave and posted another picture of myself. Ha. That is one of my favorite pictures. Little Bit and I had just finished hiking, and I carried him piggy back up the side of the mountain to get to where I took that picture. Such a beautiful place. Hugs and big love coming your way.

    Beautiful photos! Hasn’t the weather been wonderful to be outside exploring. We have 2 river birches and the bark is fascinating.

      You have River birches? Oh, that’s so neat!

      Hi. How are you? Thank you. They were tiny!

        They were so sweet. I got back to my desk last Tuesday and catching up slowly on my blog. Still a bit sad at times but this too shall pass. How are You?

        • Jessica March 6, 2017 / 9:36 am

          Uh oh, I missed something. Sad???

          • watchingthedaisies March 6, 2017 / 9:59 am

            I had a recent bereavement. I posted Time Out and Stopping the World.

            I’m so sorry. I’ll read it.
