Nature’s very own Candles (Monochrome Monday)

It’s probably only me but when I looked out the window to see the new growth on the pine tree all standing up the way they were, it reminded me of birthday candles.

As I say, it’s probably only me but even the tips on this growth look like the flames on a candle.

 

 

 

 

 

Washing away the cobwebs! (Macro Monday)

It’s not that it never rains here but for whatever reason last week, the raindrops on the pine needles had me completely and utterly transfixed.

However, it wasn’t until I sat down and began editing my raindrops that I noticed up in the top right-hand corner of this photo a beautifully woven spider’s web!
