A Green World – Quite the contrast from a few months ago. Amazing.

I love taking panoramas
around the seasons. The pans are a wide view that shows the world somewhat closer to how we really see it rather than the narrow frame of most pictures. I used to have to stitch my panoramas
together by hand, and you can see the scars in the photos of old pans. Now I take them far more easily with my iPhone simply by spinning in place. This is one of the great advances in photography as it does a better job and so fast.
A few weeks ago I showed a picture of the frog eggs
. They hatched over a three day period. A lot of little black wigglers! Interestingly, some of them are much larger than others – all from the same egg mass.
Lupin (Lupinus perennis)
One of my favorite flowers. This one is growing next to the cottage.
We have an upper pond that stores water for dry times. August and September sometimes see the springs dry up so this store of about 60,000 gallons of water is key to farming, especially livestock out on pasture.
