recently read or seen – and enjoyed

After a couple of false starts, it seems that spring may finally have arrived here at the farm. Yesterday, I saw a little spider and insect activity, and last night, Don heard Woodcock peenting back in the fields behind the barn. I have quite a bit of paper work to do around here this week (arrrggh!), so the posting will probably be light for a few more days, but here is some really wonderful reading and beautiful photos that I would like to recommend. But first, another reminder that Circus of the Spineless, the invertebrate blog carnival, will be appearing here at Burning Silo in a few day’s time. If you have a piece that you would like to submit, please do email it to me a.s.a.p.!

Now, back to these wonderful posts:

* It’s probably no secret that I’ve been enjoying reading about Pete McGregor’s travels in India. Here’s the latest of his writings and photography at Pohanginapete.

* Also, from one of my favourite blogs — robin has posted a terrific series of photos of a special visitor to the garden at Dharma Bums.

* On her blog, Dzonoqua’s Whistle, Celeste has posted a super series of vintage images of “stump homes”.

* Here’s something far too amazing to keep to myself. I stumbled upon it on Pbase while doing some work on my own photo galleries that are also hosted there. It’s a photo gallery called Intertidal Connections by photographer, Norman Rich, from Vancouver, B.C. Go take a look – it’s a real treat for the eyes.

* Recently, Carel posted another of his well-researched and wonderfully illustrated natural history essays – this one on Softshell turtles, at Rigor Vitae.

Okay, that’s it for today. Back to work here. Hope you enjoy all of the above.

    Pohangina Pete’s writings and photographs are as close to being there as I’ve ever seen. His work is absolutely stunning and evocative. I’ll take a look at the other links here, and thanks so much for the shout out, bev.

    Intertidal Connections is wonderful! Thanks for the tip. I’ve added the site to my sidelinks.

    robin – I feel the same way about Pete’s writing and photographs. His descriptions feel like paintings to me. I think you’ll enjoy the Intertidal Connections photos by Norman Rich. He’s got a terrific eye — and of course, the location on the B.C. coast makes for some wonderful subjects.

    Paul – I’m glad you visited and enjoyed Intertidal Connections. Aren’t some of the photos just amazing! (-:
