Polarized Light

Polarised light reflection

The light was glinting into the living room at an odd angle one day and I noticed the reflections of points of light on the television screen were all…fancy. But in an orderly fashion. Is the reflection polarized?

Anyway, here’s a pixel art representation of what it looked like. I think this would look cool in a comic as a special effect; a spell, or a flash from a sword in motion.

Calla Lily in Pixels

A carefully pixelled calla lily

The Quilting Bee is running another garden based activity this spring, and this is my entry, a calla lily. Mum would grow these in the garden when I was growing up, and I always thought they were so elegant and beautiful…

Last summer she gave me a potted marigold to put on my windowsill, and it bloomed all autumn and then died away. I never bothered to move the pot with the dead marigold all winter, and in the spring I was surprised to see a little calla seedling popping it’s head up! It smuggled aboard in the marigold pot!

Hopefully, I can take good care of it, and one day grow some beautiful calla lilies of my own.
