Well, I guess I'll start. I took a few pictures today and want to share. Again, the digital camera and camera phone that I tend to use are not the best quality, but until I get something better, I'm not going to let it stop me from taking pictures.

...Oh, and please excuse my misspelling of "Penstemon" in the file name of the Penstemon digitalis pic.

Thank you.

...and thank you.

The sun was getting lower and I really lucked out. I have been adding little bluestem to the field. I'd love to have a mass of them...they brighten up a winter's dull landscape with a coppery glow when the sun is behind them.

I also want to establish a beech tree or two for the same reason. They usually hold some leaves throughout the winter and the backlit glow of the leaves from a setting sun is beautiful. I'm planning for future beauty--future photographs and/or paintings.

Very nice! Two of my favorite flowers from this time of year.

I took this from the house across the street from my Dad's house. I saw it and ran over and started clicking. It's a maple in a maple!!!
