Magnolia Gift

Does the natural world offer us anything more graceful than a magnolia blossom, spilling these matchstick petals as it fully opens?  I think not.  Thank you, my dear neighbor, for bringing this lovely bloom over to us!

For all the beauty of the marsh, there is garbage everywhere you look.  It is a shame, but it can be hard tor each when the dark waters and marsh grass claim it.

Busy Little Crabs

Beneath the boardwalk, thousands of these little guys were dashing to and fro.  These two may have been up to a little bit more.

Salt Marsh

I was in South Carolina recently and met a good friend down at Shem Creek for some lunch.  There are fantastic boardwalks down there that cross the little estuaries that flow in from Charleston Harbor.  I have always adored marsh scenery - I dream of having this view every day - and it was a delight to spend an hour or so there with my camera.

A Storm Brews on Lake Michigan

Sometimes the water was a mix of grey and blue, and we saw some tremendous clouds on the horizon.

Lake Michigan in Grey

And sometimes they were grey.  It all depended on the cloud conditions and the direction you were looking.
