This big leaf blew into my view, and I couldn’t help myself – had to make a picture. Do you see the fledermaus?
Oh, yeah! I see it – I was looking at the leaves and rocks. Very arttistic, with the surprise addition of the fledermaus. 🙂
Great! I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who saw that cute li’l fellow! ;->
What in the world is a fledermaus? I can only see a leaf and it’s shadow. Let me google then come back and pore over it. I have seen a picture of a fledermaus on google and assume probably it’s the one at the top? the grey thing??? help…..
Take your time . . . ;->
Yes, it is the grey thing at the top. I thought it looked like a bat hovering over the leaf and its friends. We have a lot of bats around here that come out in the evenings during certain times of the year.
I saw one in the trees not long ago, but I’m not seeing the one in your wonderful photo, which I prefer as an abstract anyway. Good eye and fine shot.
Thanks. I didn’t know they hung out in trees.
Sorry, Judie, I only see a fish, virtual hugs, Mitza
I thought the imperfection in the cement looked like a bat flying overhead. Did i get the right word for “leaf”?
I will look at it again. Blatt is written with 2 ts. Hope you and your husband are okay. I wish you both a wonderful week-end. Here it’s terribly cold. Virtual hugs Mitza
I saw blat(t) written both ways, but did not know the difference. Thank you for the correction! ;-> It is chilly here, but the high temperature on our deck yesterday was 78 degrees, and it stayed nice like that for several hours in the afternoon. When the sun goes down, it cools off, but had cooled to only 50 degrees by the time I went to bed at about midnight. This morning it is bright sunshine, which I dearly love, and the temperature on the deck is not quite sixty degrees right now at nine o’clock in the morning. It should warm up soon from the lovely sunshine. Shhhh – don’t tell anyone, or they will all want to live here! ;->
I want to live there, too. How I hate these cold months here. Sometimes you don’t see the sun for many days and then I get depressions. My heart is Greek and it needs sun and warmth. Must be really beautiful where you live. I’m a bit envious.
Not everyone likes the desert, and it can take a long time to acclimate to it, but I love how easy it is to live here. I’ve always lived in “sunshine” states, and find that an overcast day requires more work to stay happy! ;->
yes, that’s right. Fortunately I have enough hobbies and things to do (just made some blackberry-apple jelly for my mother’s birthday) that distracts me a bit and I go out bicycling in every weather. My ears nearly froze off but I’m still living and will make a warm Yogi tea now. I would love to stay in the desert because it’s probably very calm there. I love solitude.
If you like solitude, you might enjoy Edward Abbey’s book, “Desert Solitaire”.
On one of our trips in the 80’s, we took along another of Mr. Abbey’s books, “The Monkey Wrench Gang”, and I read it out loud to Gary while we were driving around the desert in the very places that the book was talking about. It was great fun. This was in August and September, very, very hot months, and we were in our Volkswagen camper with no air conditioner, and only a cooler for food, so it was quite hot. But we were young then, and it was quite the adventure. ;->
Your jelly sounds very nice. We love berries of all kinds. Can you pick the blackberries wild? I was able to do this one fall when we were camping in the Pacific Northwest (Washington State). There were bushes everywhere in the campground, and I could pick enough for breakfast in about ten minutes right outside the door of our motorhome!
Special “happy birthday” to your mother! ;->
thanks for your recommendation of the book. I will take a look if I can get it here. The blackberries and apples were from our garden. We picked every day a few and put them in the freezer until we had two big bags. Thanks for your congrats. She will be 85 on 8th of December.
How wonderful that you still have your mother. I lost mine in 2009 at age 86. She had had Alzheimer’s disease for about ten years, so I really lost her a long time before that. 😦 I had always wanted to take her on a trip around the United States, but by the time I was in a position to do that, she was no longer able.
I’m sorry to hear that, Judie. 86 is really quite an age. Both my grandmas became 96. Well, I’m closing down now and prepare some food for my husband who will come from Berlin now. Have a nice week-end, regards Mitza
Judilyn, you’re using big words on me.
