Yesterday afternoon it snowed, then began to rain. This morning it was raining in earnest and my backyard had become a swamp. I thought I was taking a picture of it, but now I can’t find it. I have sometimes had the feeling I’ve lost some of my pictures; this is the only time I’ve been certain of it. Anyway, there was a ring of water around the maple tree and a small lake under the fir. This is what the yard looked like after Thanksgiving.
It’s been snowing again, so my small lake has disappeared.
I’ve posted some new pictures on Japan on my Mind. As I work on making my posts into a book, I’ll try to keep posting new pictures that didn’t make it into the blog the first time.
