Out My Back Door

Yes, another storm folks. This time snow. Untimely, but it truly is beautiful. We still have myriad color leaves on the trees.

Out to shovel.

February Leaves

Walking through a forest in February is ordinarily a study in black and white values.  The gray is consuming.  The eye  yearns for  relief.

Fortunately, these puddles beckoned me over to admire them.  I have not enhanced their colors.  They are what they were when they called.

Nature Attacks The Maple

For those of you who do not know, NJ, USA was hit with a scary, freakish pre-Halloween snow storm.  Power and internet service is just coming back after five days. While this was not a tragic event, it caused (among other things),  the slashing of thousands of limbs from hundreds of trees, still sporting lush green leaves.

During the storm, my family and I slowly turned our heads to one another, then causiously moved from window to window to reluctently view the damage after each erie snap of a giant tree limb crashed onto the roof or to the ground.

When the snow finally stopped, my husband and I ventured out our back door.  The brunt of the snowy wet rampage took half of our huge maple tree.  Snow already melting, the scene looked like this.

It was strangely reminisent of a documentary we watched a couple of nights before the snow, called Radioactive Wolves.  This time however, the damage was nature’s doing.  She had wierdly reclaimed and rearragned our patio, yard and neighbor’s yard.  It was kind of  morosly beautitful, especially the startling  find of new buds clinging to the carpet of branches, twigs, snow and splingered limbs layering our patio. Naturally these buds won’t survive, but like the wolves, I hope our maple will find a way.

Leaves!

We’ve got ’em.  Just this afternoon, the sun came out and the maple leaves are doing their best to shine.

Won’t be long now till Harvey tries his best to make his dreams come true.  Not to worry though, because he is almost always thwarted by nature’s balance and the boundaries of our kitty enclosure.
