Giggle Thyme

The name of the picture above is a pun because we call the decorated cement Giggleballs and with the thyme growing around it…

Sometimes the light and shadows play nicely together. Unfortunately I had the wrong lens on the camera and only a few moments to try to get the picture before the light faded. In the end in post-processing I had to add the red back to the picture because what I saw and what I captured were two different things and the more red version is closer to what I saw…

A stump that had some burn on it that was buried and then later dug up and I decided it was interesting enough to use in a corner.

Frog and Toad homes should be a bit closer to the ground, but perhaps one would like the view?

The deer have helped keep this tree trimmed up for us for many years. It is too bad they won’t trim the one I would actually like them to!

As she really likes to work with the beach stones and sort them by shape and color this came together rather well.

We’re a bit of a ways away from navigable water, but like I’ve said before, cement and rocks…

If you’ve looked at the water project page you’ve seen this next picture, but it is also the best picture that I have of the lighthouse.
