Sharing some crunchy fresh strawberries and magnolia bud getting ready for spring

( only if I could share the taste of those juicy strawberries and the scent of magnolia which fills up the air,  with the same ease – because freshness is not just about what you see, it’s an experience :) )  

 

Weekly photo challenge : Rule of Thirds

Three amazing birds and the Rule of Thirds

A sparrow, a gull and a Canada goose….birds bold and adaptable, that keep us company all through the year, through the cold winter and the hot summer.IMG_7727

My favorite are the sparrows though, small and cute, hopping around lawns and balconies. They live in peace adding a little chirpy song to the early mornings, idle afternoons and serene evenings.

(as opposed to the Canada geese, that can get aggressive when threatened, and sea gulls that can literally snatch your food from your hands when hungry)

Weekly Photo Challenge : Shadowed

What if I say  its not the clouds casting the shadow but the sun?

Shadowed but thriving, spotted this young chicken mushroom in the shadow of the bark of a fallen tree, and after a few weeks it was gone. I did not realize that it is an edible mushroom till I googled it. Some one must have had a nice feast.
