Embedded Brick Chip Heart

April 16, 2012

Sometimes I just have to wonder about myself! This little gem finally got itself noticed after, oh, probably a year of parking right by it. I’m glad it persisted!


Twin Tree Stump Heart

April 1, 2012

Kind of like they’re spooning. Or conjoined at the hip. Or something of that nature.

Curiously, they faded within a few days of my discovering them. After the tree had been cut down for many weeks.

I like that.

Upside-Down Tulip Heart

March 25, 2012

In honor of Spring. Which, truth be told, came a bit too early this year.

I don’t mind warm weather, but believe that winter in these parts needs to have a good measure of snow.

On account of all kinds of reasons…

But- here’s the tulip!

Red Wax Lips Heart

January 21, 2012

It took me a minute to figure this one out. Had to stoop down and dig my fingernail into it to verify.

I didn’t sniff it to see if it still had that fruity-perfumy smell.

That would have been going too far….

Gingko Leaf Heart

Simple, and to the point, dontchathink?

Bird Business Heart

December 4, 2011

I’ve seen these now and then- this is one of the best I’ve captured- and I mean that in the photographic sense.

Not in the “on my head when I was courting a fair lass in college” sense.

I scrubbed up, we had tea, and that was about all there was to that.

Morning News Heart

November 1, 2011

Well, there it was- right on my front stoop!

Squirrel-gnawed Walnut Heart

October 24, 2011

Not a big fan of the squirrel, I’ll admit it. Although they have merit- they make my dog Trudy very excited. And now and then they do nice work like this!

Astroturf Heart

October 17, 2011

There it was, just waiting for me to come across it.

Across the street at my dog Trudy’s best friend Woody’s place.

Earthquake/Hurricane Brick Shard Heart

September 7, 2011

Ok- this is completely random. What are the chances?

As you undoubtedly know, we had a 5.9 magnitude earthquake here in DC late last month. At which point the neighboring chimney pictured below shed some bricks. A number landed in the yard & drive beneath it. If you look closely, some remained on the roof, held back by the gutter.  Until a tropical storm hit, blowing more bricks from the roof. Found a shard. A heart. Who’d a thunk it? Not me!
