This is my entry for the Gardening Gone Wild Photo Contest for April 2011

 It is often dificult to catch just the right shot in just the right light but this spider seemed to be in the spotlight the way the sun caught her web and shimmered around her.  Her web symetrically created like a work of art and I was lucky enough to be there to appreciate it.  Nature is an amazing thing.

Feels at each thread, and lives along the line.”

 The subject is “The Gardener’s Intent”.

 In my entry, I am trying to convey what I love most about my  yard and gardens. ~ They are enjoyed. 

 I took the picture earlier this summer and I thought it fit the bill, at least for my garden.  The setting sun gives our fire pit area a spotlight, and the young fire give an extra warmth to the twilight of a beautiful day in one of our favorite parts of our garden. 

  It has come a long way since we moved in three years ago. 

  ~”Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.  A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world.  ~Ada Louise Huxtable

  Winter’s Light is the theme for GGW Picture This Photo Contest this month. This is my entry.     winters-light

The afternoon light catching on this icicle hanging out my window made for an interesting shot.  There is so little color, yet you can feel the cold on the gray winter’s day. It depicts the starkness of Winter to me.

  I also enjoyed seeing the paintings made by Jack Frost on my window one morning this winter. 

To me, this one looks like tall grass and ferns on the side of a pond.


 Looks like a bird flying near the top of an evergreen tree.
