There wasn't any frost this morning. It rained a bit last night. That was enough to put a kibosh on the frost. So here I am playing with pictures from last week that I wanted to share with you. This is the last group of pictures. It isn't that I didn't take at least a hundred more. But these have been my favorites!
Sumac seed pod
I have tried to look online to find out what plant these seed pods belong to. I come up with Sumac but I don't remember this tree's leaves turning red last fall. I was given a layout of the plants in the yard from the landscaping. But in my wisdom, I put it away in a "safe" spot. Don't you hate those "safe" spots? The top picture if covered in a red covering. The picture below shows some of that covering has dropped off and seed pods that are uncovered are red and orange.

Okay, I had to play with the vignette. Doesn't it add that extra pop? Or a bit of a dream factor? I guess the frost on the seed pod didn't really need that extra pop. It was beautiful in it's own right. I have always wanted decorative grasses in my yard. Last spring I planted some at my old place. I was glad to see that there were some in the landscaping out here. I was even more exited when I saw it filled with frost.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
