Dendrites, Narcissi and The Weird People

Our patio is getting its annual clean with pressure washing. I’m like a big kid playing with the water. I love it every Spring when the Dendritic patterns are revealed again. Cornwall is very damp and a green film grows over the stones over the winter and it’s like magic when there they are again, so delicate and pretty!  I used to think they were fossilised ferns but no……  “Dendrite Limestone (sometimes called picture stone or painted stone) is an amazing original work of art by Mother Nature. The patterns occur naturally due to the presence of iron and manganese oxide Dendrites.  Dendrites are the branch-like formations of manganese oxide crystallising within the limestone.”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Motion 2

Last Mid Summer Solstice, jumping the flames as part of the Mid Summer ritual. I love how the stripes are all blurry showing the speed with which the jump is made. What a joyful celebration it was!
