Outdoor Hearts

Today the rain stopped and the sun was out ALL day!  

So, as soon as I could respectfully flee from the work today, I grabbed my camera and headed for the park.  I wanted to get my "spring" photo for my 4 season project.  Along the way I found some fun natural hearts.

A heart in the bark.


An upside down heart in the fungus.


And a little green one on the trunk...ok, this might be a stretch, but it still counts!


Clytie and friends have more hearts at Random Hearts.

I do have more park photos and water photos for over the next week.  One thing about rain for weeks on end, great rushing rivers!  Also, when I get finished editing the 4 seasons photos I will post them all together.

M.E.

Now you really have a good eye...I doubt if I could have found those!

They're all so beautiful! And no, it wasn't a stretch on that last one -- very clearly a beautiful and perfect lichen heart!

Great finds - I love the hearts in the fungus!

I love the way you look beyond the scene to capture a little image in a larger picture. You have a true eye for the details, which is something I ought to try and develop. As an aside, I LOVE the texture of the bark in the first shot.

So many great hearts! The last one is totally a heart :)

A clever and fun post, especially as I enjoy taking photos of trees when I get the chance. Never looked for hearts though, that's pretty special.

Fun, natural hearts! We had a peek of sunshine this week and that was it...we're back to gloom and rain! ha.
