A stray sun beam highlights the texture of this fungus, looking lush and happy on a dead tree stump.
…if it fur is warm enough that the predicted colder than normal January doesn’t nip its buds.
I’m not exactly sure what plant this is, but its fuzzy flower buds caught my eye on a New Year’s Day walk. I loved the textures and the way the little fuzzy hairs caught the winter light.
I looked into it a bit last year and learned that my zygocactus, also known as schlumbergera, is a Thanksgiving or crab sort, not a Christmas cactus (hence it is about done blooming). Mine also tends to flower in spring, often around Easter, and sometimes again in summer. I guess it likes the bay window.
For Cee’s Flower of the Day and Macro Monday (officially on hiatus for the holidays).
The closer one looks at moss the more fascinated one becomes…at least if the one is I. I can imagine a “Horton hears a who” story taking place on these tiny worlds tucked into the nooks of my dwarf apple trees.
The moss on my apple trees was catching the low angle of November’s light when I got home from walking the dogs this morning.
It seems appropriate for Sunshine’s Macro Monday!
I have a fondness for this not quite plant. The textures are amazing, as is the biology.
