The week that was in photos

blue flowers nature

Hi! This past week it was all about nature…and circles.

I was desperate to see some of nature’s beautiful colours so bought flowers not once but twice this week. Spring hopes were delayed when the temperature dropped to -5 C (23 F).

Last weekend we went on an incredible night outing to see Eastern Tiger and Spotted salamanders  in the middle of the woods. On Monday after school I took Luce and Theo back to see the same vernal pool in daylight.

The wild birds continue to sing and visit our garden. Here’s a sweet black-capped chickadee.

My daughter’s ballet class is in the Tracy Anderson studio here in the Hamptons. I drove to Mecox Bay nearby for a stroll but the area is filled with huge houses and no where to walk. Here’s my shot of nature with houses in the background.

Some pink to brighten up our dining room table.

This morning my kids went on a backpack adventure for young naturalists with SOFO in Sagg Swamp. Here are some turkey-tail fungus we spotted on a tree trunk.

And I did mention this week was about circles as well. I had another post with Google Plus tips as part of my G+ series and will be launching a linky on the first Monday of every month to help you grow your circles. 3 Children and It put a big smile on my face when she recommended them in her Friday Favourites.

And it’s week 13 for Project 365.

Meanwhile I’m hoping the sunny and warm side of Mother Nature will soon appear as I want to see flowers growing everywhere again.

Have a lovely week ahead!

Cheers, Kriss

  1. Oh now these are lovely. Those flowers at the top look so delicate – and I want to pick up that bird and pop it in my pocket!
    I’m doing the LAB newsletter tomorrow so I’ll pop in a link to your G+ tips page and mention your linky as I know there’s quite a few people who want to get to grips with it! x
