Into The Woods

Just behind our house is the forest.  The land drops off and we walk down, down, down to get to the bottom where we are surrounded by forest.

At the very bottom there is a small pond -- but the journey to get there is what its all about.  For there are any number of things to see if I look carefully.  The other day I came upon these red mushrooms -- a blast of color in a world of green and brown.

There is a bench there but sadly a southern forest in the summer is no place to stand or sit still. Things are crawling and buzzing and 'alive'.  Its better to keep moving.

Do you suppose the fairies dance in this bed of ferns?

Time to head back up the stairs and leave this deep forest in its mystery.

  1. Looks like a great place to get some exercise with its incline, and lovely view all the way! I'm surprised you didn't encounter one of your "Unlikely" population on that bench. They are surely not bothered by bugs.

  2. It is always so much easier to keep walking when there's something interesting around the next bend, isn't it!

  3. I love those red mushrooms--a perfect spot of color!

  4. It looks magical. A good source of inspiration?

  5. If you go down to the woods today
    You're sure of a big surprise.
    If you go down to the woods today
    You'd better go in disguise

    Thank you, I'll be humming that all day now!!

    Have a marvelous weekend. Might you sneak back to that woods and perhaps see the Teddy Bears at play!?!
    xx, Carol
