Sunday Flower Pr0n: Mountain Laurel

I GOT TO GO TO THE WOODS YESTERDAY!

Why is this exciting? Because it’s been five weeks already since I broke my foot, and since the weather was lovely, I put on my foot, grabbed my crutches, and we took a short hike at Coopers Rock.

It was LOVELY to be in the forest. Especially since one of my favorite flowers was on display.

Flowers and Lights

Wednesday I was lucky enough to get to go to the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for the light show.

Yeah, there was flower pr0n galore, but the lights were really wonderful.

Sunday Flower Pr0n

Not a lot of flowers to be found at Spruce Knob and Seneca Rocks, but these were pretty.

Sunday Flower Pr0n: Cranberry Glades

Late September is when the earliest leaves change color in areas like Cranberry Glades and Dolly Sods and Canaan Valley. Since I love Cranberry Glades best that’s where we went.

Not much in the way of leaf color, but a beautiful day nevertheless.

Sunday Flower Pr0n: Blackwater Canyon Edition

The monitor on my Asus laptop died, and although I did use my desktop computer for processing images, if I’m going to spend lots of time on the computer, I’d rather do so upstairs on a laptop, so Michael and I can be in the same room ignoring each other.

Saturday we hiked the rail trail along the Blackwater Canyon, and we did manage to see wildflowers (even if there were (sadly) no snacks along the trail).

Not *quite* UF, but definitely not high fantasy, I do recommend Steven Brust’s Vlad Taltos series. I’ve fallen off keeping up with the series, because there were a LOT of delays for about a decade, but I need to pick it back up.
