In the absence of flora, I shall enjoy these fauna blossoms.

Incredible and gorgeous, the peacock is my favorite!

June said...

That's my favorite too.

I saw the top one and thought you were being crafty with bell peppers . I won't tell you how many I looked at before the penny dropped .
But seriously , still no flowers ? Even we now have the odd small yellow star-shaped thing . A weed , I think , but very cheery .

At first, I questioned what does she mean "fauna blossoms"...Then that first photo made me do a double take...finally...I really "saw" what I was seeing! Incredible is right!

I have seen these before and they never cease to amaze me. Thanks for the reminder!

i saw some crocuses today and I almost danced in the street with glee.

Still no flowers, S&S.
Right this minute, the temperature is 40ºF, and "feels like 31," which to you is -0.555555ºC.

June said...

In case you missed it, there's a "-" in front of that 0.555555ºC.

Ok, now I feel a bit like odd man out, as these pictures give me the willies. But that's just me. Oh, and by the way, my word verification said "truckin'". How cool is that?

Amazing! Where did you find these? I'm happy to report that I have found THREE wildflowers already in Saratoga County: Skunk Cabbage, Hazelnut, and Coltsfoot. The floral season is delayed, but boy will it burst forth when we finally get some warmth.

Cool post ... weird and wonderful!

Absolutely amazing photos!

June said...

Somebody sent them to me in an email. I went to the website that's watermarked on the pictures and it's an Iranian something or other.
I closed it and just . . . left.

I like that these photos shake up my perceptions and make me look at things differently.

Fran said...

They are very, very clever.

Hilary said...

Wow.. these are amazing. It took me a few until I realized what I was actually seeing.

Pauline said...

Your last two posts have been feast of delight for ear and eye! Thanks!

Lord Wellbourne said...

Glad you liked them. I knew you would. You're kinda edgy in the best possible way.

June said...

Sometimes I'm kinda edgy in the worst possible way...

Friko said...

Good grief, it took me ages to work out the first photo but from then on I was just breathless.

Gol - ly, who on earth designed that?

June said...

The artist is Cecilia Webber.
This is her web page:

Lord Wellbourne said...

And even then....with class and finesse.

Barb said...

Obviously, my brain had to switch gears a bit when I started looking through these photos. The artist's creativity is amazing. Those are the only flowers I'll see tonight - big snow here...

Wild! I had to do a double take on that first one. Crazy.
