In A Fog

Saturday morning we wake to a heavy fog.  We take the dogs for a walk before the sun burns off the mist. Walking in the fog is one of my favorite experiences. I think the closeness of the fog creates surprises because even on familiar paths you can see something new....
This morning I noticed freshly spun spider webs all around that seemed to just glisten.  
The bright yellow of the forsythia seems to glow against the grayness.    
I also notice on mornings like today there is the lack of an echo. Even the sound of the gravel crunching under our feet as we walk down the drive way didn't seem to go far.
The only thing that seems to have 'gone far' is Todd's favorite toy, red ball.  Its been a really tough toy that he has played and played and played with, and not chewed up. We have looked everywhere and it appears to be nowhere.  Maybe it's lost in the fog...

My dogs react strangely to fog. They bark at it. I think they feel it on their faces and whiskers and don't know what it is.

Last week we had a few foggy mornings,and it stayed grey and murky all day.Lovely pictures Kim..very atmospheric. :0)

It's probably gone to live with all the lost stockings. ;-)
We had pea soup fog this morning, too. Made for some sloow driving.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Kim, You have made me view fog in a totally different way-so thank you. I so prefer the warm sunshine to wake up to. Loved seeing the sights of your place. Reggie saw the vet yesterday and while he gets stiffer each day in his back legs, they can't believe how well he is and how he has carried on.
He did get one shot and had a rough night but hopefully tonight will be better. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Noreen & Reggie

the last shot is too lovely for words. little enchanted beings live there and are hidden in plain sight. just exquisite.
as are you and your crew.

Sharon said...

Great fog pictures, ahem, you should have put on a long nightgown and gotten a little further in and had Carl take a shot. Would have great this fall!

Nancy Claeys said...

Kim, I've really missed your blog and it's totally my fault. It's such a busy time here -- but I'm glad I made it over to see your fog post.

We've had fog for 3 days and I haven't taken a shot. My mind is a jumble with all that has to be done... oh well.

I hope you find that red ball! :)

Jill said...

I also love the fog. Your photos are lovely!

scotsmad said...

We enjoyed your foggy walk. So much to look at. Spider webs are beautiful in the fog.

Try looking under furniture--that's where our missing stuff usually ends up.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Love the shot of the spider web! Looks like your trees grass and forsythia are 2-3 weeks ahead of us :-)

Bassetmomma said...

Looks like a great walk for all. Love the pic of the spider web! Happy Patty's Day!

Morning mist and fog are my favorite backdrops for taking photos. Your photographs are simply stunning!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Your photos are so beautiful of the fog! Like magic!
We love the fog too, and especially when it drifts through the trees and creeps over the hills!
We hope the red ball gets found for little Todd.

Favourite toys have a habit of reappearing at a time and a plAce of their own choosing .

The mystique of fog, you have indeed captured beautifully.

May the red ball find its way home and to the joys of Todd - once again.

Sharon said...

Love this post, Kim!

jodistone said...

I don't mind the fog as long as it isn't too thick. I like to see what's in front of me. :-)

I hope you find Todd's favorite toy.

Sammie and Avalon said...

Magical photos in the foggy am mist! Love the silvery web and how I miss forsythia in the spring - it's been years since I've seen it pop out in full bloom back east - lovely! Have an equally peaceful Sunday!

Beautiful fairytale weather. We had fog on Friday too...and we're in the Southern hemisphere.
Hope Todd finds his red ball soon. Maybe you left it at one of the daycare visits...?

Wonderful photos Kim! The fog does present great photo opportunities. I have always found it very claustrophobic but I will try to look at it differently from now on.....I will!

KT and Easton said...

Put 10 pounds of Punkin treats in a bag and leave it by the Oak tree next to the main road, the red ball will be returned when the ransom is paid.

Hi Guys, and our little buddy Todd especially! We've had some very foggy mornings here too, hope Todd finds his ball, he's probably hidden it somewhere, that's what we do, but then we forget and get a great surprise when we come across it! xxx

Karine said...

It was very foggy here yesterday morning as well! I love your photos of the forsythia and the spider web :o) Did you find Todd's ball?

I am loving these fog pictures! Sharon had some posted on her blog as well... There's something about the fog... (but I hate driving in it)

2browndawgs said...

We have had a lot of fog here too. Yikes on the ball...

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

Looks like you had a great walk. I love the fog early of the morning. It's like the mountains are wearing a veil. The spider web photo and forsythia bush are very pretty. I loved the photos of the dogs as always. Have an enjoyable spring day.

Larry Ostby said...

I love walking in the fog. Your pictures are great. I do favor the spider web. Did you check Todd's bed?

Catherine said...

Great shots - especially that spider's web. Fantastic!

Gill - That British Woman said...

have you found the ball yet?

KB said...

Beautiful photos of the fog. Love the spider web! I hope that you find Todd's ball...

And, no, I don't think that you're putting too much thought into the day care for Todd. I hope that you'll find a place that you're totally comfortable with.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Great shoots! We had fog here to on our vacation in Austria. An our dachshund team had snow, storm and rain in Sweden...

Reena Walkling said...

What a nice walk. Love that photo of one of the dogs looking back at you.
