marks made

this mark, 
asphalt crack was extended by something 
or someone
to create a lovely loop
which wouldn't photograph well
 and these weatherd shingles
seen backwards below
hold on to their red pigment
 a strange surface
marked by water and pressure
 little jude marks
 and green 
green!!!
coming on.
nesting close by is a crow family, 
they are silent coming and going from the nest, 
but i know not precisely but almost, 
where they are.
i expect lots of happy crow babies soon!
some people make marks
then they make tracks
high tailing away.

Lovely picures, you have a happy eye for textures and unusual marks.
I love your stitching, speaks of spring and blue skies.

Last summer I had a crow family nest not too far.. the yearlings come back in a little trio, sometimes accompanied by the larger clan, to forage around under the beech tree for nuts. I miss them now that nut season is over. They were my "morning crows". But, alas, all is not lost as I now have the forest warblers and the Thrush songs in the morning!

Love the fleeing bovine!

blandina, oh, that stitching is judes! but the eye is mine!
lF, only your moose calves are way fewer around here than these beefers

valerie, that calf was a total hoot. i got too close for comfort and he went scampering for mom.
