Beauty is where you find it #49 : Pastels !!!

Last Sunday, when we had our morning walk (here), we had the occasion to look at some gifts from Mother Nature....




....we still don't know what "they" are!!!! I think that these things are groups of eggs, but from who?
Nature's mistery or just a little bit of ignorance from us? Hope to solve the enigma soon!!!

In these rainy afternoons, I like to take a cup of tea (some cookies, too!) and to crochet some granny squares...







....not a real project in my mind, just lovely to play with the colours!!!! ;oD

Today's link : Beauty is where you find it # 49 : PASTELS !!! Go there : such lovely photos to look at!!! thank you !!!

  10. Cara Alessandra, che belli questi colori.Anche a me piace farmi ispirare dalla natura, e da quando lo faccio,mi sono accorta che faccio caso allo scorrere delle stagioni molto più di prima.
    Mi hai fatto venire una voglia matta di fare granny!

    Hope you solve the mystery of the tree and it's 'decorations' I 'm curious to know what they are.

  14. I love your colorful grannies and those trees have the biology teacher in my doing some research! So interesting--I'm betting bug egg cases. I'll let you know if I find out!

  15. Ale, From what I can tell it is a spot fungus--possibly the coral spot fungus. You can find out more about it at http://www.thisisexeter.co.uk/Fallen-branches-play-host-coral-spot-fungus/story-13939224-detail/story.html

    While searching I came across a pink kaydid--unbelievable! You can see it here...http://mudfooted.com/pink-insect-katydid/. LOL! Such a science nerd I am! Thanks so much for sharing!

  16. Thank you so much for the get well wishes Ale, everyone has been so sweet.

    I'm pretty sure your eggs are Island Apple Snail eggs - Pomacea insularum - hope that helps :D

  17. Or maybe, Pomacea canaliculata, the Channelled Apple Snail, think that might be more likely in Indonesia.
