mornings with hoar frost are always filled with magic
Thanks Margie, we had an incredible hoar frost here yesterday morning. All this warm weather has put so much moisture in the air. I had never seen anything quite like this one. You are so sweet to visit.

This is really striking. I love it.
collected in one afternoon on the mediterranean beach near sete, france
This is so beautiful (each one is like a little sculpture). Your photo triggered a childhood memory. My grandmother used to vacation in South Carolina each year and would come back with tiny shells that she would glue in rows. Rows and rows of little butterflies.
I totally get your grandmother: gather, sort, arrange. I think we all share that desire. It is just so deeply satisfying. That is why am loving this project. I get to do it every day. It is very centering.
Thanks for sharing Kathleen.
This is incredible! What a wonderful collection. Love the way you’ve set it up for display.
This speaks to the accountant in me….
found on pike island at the confluence of the minnesota and mississippi rivers
i really enjoy the natural sculptural aspect of burrs in general
Usually I find those on my sleeve or my dog’s fur so I don’t stop to note how pretty they are–kind of like a spiky pine cone.
I am pleased that I inspired your fresh eyes.
