Springtime Macro: The Back Yard

The trees are leaving (or is it leafing?) out. The blossoms are blowing about. The ferns are unfolding. Moss invades the lawn and adorns the moist spots. With the sun shining and warmth bathing the emerging green, the yard seems to almost twitch to life before me. I snapped some hand held macro images.

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”  Margaret Atwood

“Spring is the time of plans and projects.”  Leo Tolstoy

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”   Mark Twain

Food: Chuck Wagon Recipes

Chuck Wagon Recipes

Ah, how the mind bounces along early in the morning: I had this photograph and had focused down into the axle. I thought how is that wagon wheel axle built? What are the components of an old wagon wheel? How did they lubricate (grease) those old wheels on journeys? 

I researched tallow, blackjack grease, block grease, coal tar grease and then I happened upon a greasing piece at Chuck Wagon Recipes and decided the food preparations looked far more interesting than the grease. Aren’t you glad?

Wagon Wheel Stopped Rollin’ Lush Green

Photography: I love photography. But, admittedly, I fall prey to the ‘Auto’ mode more often than not. So, I am not a true photographer concerned with f-stops and shutter speeds. I do experiment with it, but more with my macro work when photographing the fly patterns. So, I just snap and see (a new terminology and you can use it: S & S). I would prefer to take landscapes of scenic mountain ranges or meadows. For now my back yard was my meadow of sorts.

This old wagon wheel has leaned against this alder tree for at least sixteen years. It has never been treated, something I regret. So it sags ever so slightly, like I do, ever so slightly, as the years pass by. The lush green is the result of 14″ of rain the past few months (a record even for Portland) and I have been remiss in not getting out the vines that are encroaching upon the Iris, the Wheel and my wonderful clanging bell. The bell is situated where it only rings when the East wind howls down the Columbia River Gorge in the Winter. Right now it would never clang as the vines have their grip upon the bell’s clanger. I do need to get out there and cut things back a bit.
