Early morning light and tree silhouettes make for a beautiful sublime Sunday!
Sunlight Breaking Through the Trees at Edge of Rooftop
There was a weird phenomena in the mostly clear sky - a slight rainbow!
Not sure if it was because of the heavy dew we have been having that also created a lot of moisture in the air or something else.

There was also these strange clouds that looked like rays of light above other rounded clouds -

Back on our land there has been quite a succession of growth in what is now wet areas!
There has been trees which are healthy toppling over because the area they are growing in has so much moisture that the ground has soften and has been like that for quite a while. When the wind begins to blow heavy the trees usually sway in the wind but with the swaying they now are up rooting.
The under story has changed. From the moss, ferns and other woodland plants to marsh marigolds, mints, horsetails and this year with more light hitting the forest floor lots of currents are showing up.

Seeing all that moisture I planted willows and red oiser dogwood along our lane to help soak up the water.
They have really grown and it makes for a beautiful walkway but I never thought that they would be the main trees standing as the other areas beside the lane opened up.

Here is another peaceful scene down by the pond where the water levels are really up too!
