Stony lady waits
All visitors are welcome
Her bench has a view
When I took these photographs I thought these were dried leaves in an arty configuration. On closer inspection at home, I think there may be more to it as they are too precisely shaped.
Here’s a slightly closer view. It was quite breezy that day which may be why I didn’t get a closeup shot
I’m hoping to return to this spot soon, and to remember to look. If I do and they are there I’ll follow up.

A snippet of nature that made me pause as I wandered the edge of a pond.
Sometimes the light just isn’t with you.
But you like the subject. A Green Heron on a gnarly branch worked for me.
I took the color out of the first two, but left the duckweed green in this last one.
Triangles of grass and their reflections caught my eye.
The dragonfly was a bonus.
Freshly dampened by the rain, this Magnolia Blossom was reaching for the sky.
And from a little different angle.
The grounds around Magnolia Plantation and Gardens are dotted with decorative statues. Look close and you will see an alligator tail and a turtle to the right of this lady, sharing the view of the pond.
