The bud on my office aloe is starting to open. Will it be orange?
Cute, but invasive weeds; thankfully they are easy to pluck from the earth.
This week’s theme at tookapic.com is “drinks” and we just so happen to be infusing our own water in a giant container on our kitchen counter. The combination of lime and red grapefruit is quite refreshing!
I think these are trumpet lichen (Cladonia Fimbriata). I’ve been trying to get a clear shot of them since I discovered them in early March. Today, I tried out a mini tripod with flexible legs and it certainly helps get a clear shot from an otherwise awkward/impossible position.
It is challenging to get a clear shot of these tiny sporophytes with auto focus, which is what I primarily use. Manual focus worked like magic! I think it’s time to start using it more.
The sun’s reflection off a mirrored building shines directly into the office, and it is blinding. Some of us jokingly wonder if it’s the rapture and why we are still here. I exaggerated the brightness in Photoshop for a more dramatic effect. I think the spot on the right is a reflection on the window of something that is behind me.
This ground cover in our backyard is popping purple everywhere!
