For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing some stained glass windows from Saint Margaret’s Episcopal Church, Annapolis, Maryland.
I’m a big fan of early lifeforms such as mosses and lichens (pronounced liken.)
Let’s take a closer look. Mosses, much like plankton (the earliest form of plant life) are highly dependent on an immediate supply of water.
Here we have some pretty pink buds alongside another, hardier moss.
Next we have lichens which are a beautiful example of symbiosis between algae (or cyanobacteria) living among filaments of multiple fungi species. Lichens have properties different from those of their component organisms. Wikipedia
Here is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere challenge.
Princess Pirouette peered over the top of her cards and giggled. This made young Abigail Hofenhof giggle too. “Your Highness is always giving away your hand!” She said mirthfully.
“Oh! You’re one to talk!” Rejoined the Princess. “You act like you have an ace up your sleeve every hand!”
“Well, maybe I do! You never know.”
Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge
For today’s Flower of the Day, I decided just to post this one photograph of this lovely orchid, taken on March 17, 2021.
Here is my entry for Debbie Smyth’s Travel With Intent blog, One Word Sunday Challenge. This week her topic is Spring.
Rather than green, to me yellow is the color of Spring (with a little pink thrown in).
Let’s take a closer look at some daffodils, shall we?
The other day, for her Flower of the Day challenge, Cee Neuner posted the back of some daffodils. I thought it looked great. Imitation is the highest form of flattery!
Now here’s some of that pink I promised you!
Even though today was a bit dreary, the birds are coming in droves to herald Springtime! If you look closely, you can a big flock on the ground in front of the yellow house.
