L'Ognon -- between Lure and Froideterre

How water gets into the sea? (Rain and snow in the mountains, melting, dripping, rushing rivulets, hasty steps, high falls, brooks and small rivers, flowing amidst meadows and countryside, feeding the broad watery arteries, fleeting silvery ribbons, all combined like the roots and branches of a large tree.) Our river, the Ognon, is born somewhere up in the southern Vosges, and on its way to the Saône -- which itself flows in the direction of the Rhône, one of the arteries that feed the Mediterrean Sea -- it passes the little French town where I live, fleeting, but already quietly, meandering with lots of bends and curves, and only whitecapped and rapidly flowing in some places where stones form a barrier.

They are hiding under broken flowerpots -- showing their snakeskin dress as soon as the first springsun heats the stone. They are standing on one leg in mossy flowerpots -- turning lazily with what wind will blow. Unseen, because they are always there.

Happy lanterns. Shining brightly in the colours of monarch butterflies.

Playing around with my new pixelgadget, I discovered with great joy the ultra macropictures, in a range where only blurred colourmagic is pixelized. The first pure colour extracts I received from springflowers (Veronica) and from a crushed piece of an terra cotta flowerpot. Afterwards I tried different other flowers. Here a choice from my barriertrespassing nearness explorations.

A hot springday

Aegean skies in the East of France

Sometimes, unexpectedly, it can be surprising hot in the first weeks of march. So hot, so sunny, that the lizards leave their winter's refuge, the lemon yellow butterflies are all around and the sky is brilliant with that deepblue colour, normally reserved for aegean islands. Only the cactusplants still have to rest indoors, but soon, they too will be placed on the sills, steps and the veranda outside.
