“Fall, shmall.  Gonna set seed.”

Yes, I know that garden gurus recommend doing many things in fall.  I also know that some plants routinely set seed then.  But most of my lawn only kicks grass into flower beds in spring and summer.  Intrigued by a patch that seemed to be proclaiming this post’s title, I took a break from raking fall leaves to photograph the nonconforming grass from angles that yielded contrasting backgrounds.  Growing more vigorously than most of my lawn, this little patch may be onto something.

Icy Moods

My fingers can still press camera buttons for a few minutes in moderately cold weather, if I wear thin gloves and either lean out a window or stand in a doorway.  Now and then, I can freeze a good visual moment in a winter day or night w/o freezing my fingers in the process.  It’s not just about getting images like these four.  It’s also about flipping the bird at the “winter of life” metaphor for old age.  Winter can be so beautiful.
