Seven Day Nature Photo – Day Three – Remains of winter on a Spring day

I have been nominated by my friend Gilly, the very lucid Gypsy, to take part in a challenge of a photo per day for seven days, of anything from the natural world.

Today, I am posting some shots taken early this morning in a small garden dear to me… As I strolled in the sun, I saw plenty of evidence of spring (to be shown tomorrow), but in a shaded corner I saw a few remains from the previous season still around (same ones I had previously seen, still not tidied away!). Anyone who is familiar with this blog knows I love a bit of decay….

Today I would like to nominate Tish of A writer on the Edge to take part in the 7-day Nature Photo Challenge. She takes some lovely images from the natural world as she sees it locally.  I would love to see what she might come up with for this challenge….. No problem if you are far too busy/don’t want to take part, Tish!

    Perfect shots Sue! Are those flowers or leaves that looks like little butterflies? So amazing and so perfect! I just love them! 😀 ♥

  2. A lovely find, Sue. I can just imagine your delight. 🙂

  3. wonderful atmospherical photos, Sue, go on like this, regards Mitza

  4. The decaying petals are a tiny wonder indeed. Nice shots, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Sue, I may have some photos of whatever the petals are in your second shot (both lovely shots, BTW), although mine are clustered in a large group. I haven’t posted them yet, but I’m also a great lover of the beauty of dead things, albeit in the plant world, not the animal or human. 🙂

  6. The counterpoint between the new and the old is always something you capture so beautifully, Sue. I love the juxtaposition of the two photos. 🙂

  7. Lovely shots and great colour. Skeleton leaves and flowers are always a winner. When you see how frail thye are you can understand how everything returns to the earth.

  8. Can’t even remember what I was going to say because I’m so busy fielding comments, Sue, so I’ll just send a hug. 🙂 How are you feeling this week?

  9. I love the hangings. Such grace and pendulous weight.

  10. Those skeleton leaves are so delicate a puff of wind could blow them away,
