My backyard is bounded by woods along Sharps Run, forming part of the perimeter of Medford Leas.  Most of the woods is evergreens and much of that is white pine.  Last night’s mix of rain and sleet enjoyed settling on the pine needles.  It certainly wasn’t my plan to be out there this morning but there you are.


I was pleased with my results but I kept seeing slightly different points of view so ……


Here’s an overview that made me think of a mummer’s costume.


A winter version of a Cleome or a Spider Mum.


The sun finally rose above the rooftops on the left, and it will make short work of the iceing.

Good.  Back to breakfast.


On the way in, not a pine tree branch but, nevertheless, asking for my camera’s attention.
