Forks in the Garden


It was a late afternoon Sunday evening in November. I was lurking the garden looking to take pictures of birds when I realized this capture of forks would be enough of a reward. There are magical times for capturing good photography; they are early morning and late afternoon. Autumn in California is not as colorful as you would find in may other regions of the United State, but the muted colors do provide a great backdrop.

Morning Dew

On a misty morning, I woke up to see this rose bush with a good amount of morning dew. It looked like it had rained overnight, but this moisture was solely from the morning foggy conditions. We are currently suffering from drought conditions in California, so I guess I should be happy for any moisture evening if it’s just a misty morning dew.

February Blooms

There is spot on Old Redwood Highway between Windsor and Healdsburg, California that has a row of cherry trees that every year provide a February bloom. This was captured during an unusually cold Sunday morning in February. It was a break in the pleasant February weather we’ve been having.
