    Home...

    I love everything about the woods, but especially the way they smell so.... green.  There is a sense of being at home there, surrounded by living things and all of it seems to be carried in the scent of forest.  It fills me with a sense of peace and rightness; feels...

    The Forest At Dusk

    Ever since I installed a wood-burner to get me through the winter, I have kept a tradition of going out into the forest at dusk to forage deadwood. I like the feeling of a place that is returning to nature - even though some of the sounds can be un-nerving. As the light fades...

    Walked just for a mile

    as the Sun was setting over the sea. A beautiful Jacob's ladder appeared casting gold, orange and pink hues across the approaching twilight. The earthy, smoky scents of early bonfires fill the air and I look forward to making hot chocolate when I return home.

    Fresh and Clean

    Just so much oxygen it's easier to breath and fresh and clean and oh I just love it, especially after a rain storm has gone through. Oh but not the bugs... hate the bugs. YUCK!

    I Love The Smell Of The Woods

    When I was small, my folks would let me roam around all over the place.  We lived very near the woods.  At that time, it was unheard of that grown ups would abuse, steal, or do much of anything to a kid.  From about 4 until we moved to where there are no woods, I...

    Under a Blanket of Leaves

    Being a City Girl

    I have only been in the woods a few times. I love walking or driving in and feeling the change in atmosphere. The cooler wetter air, the smell of sweet, damp earth, hearing the birds in the trees. The lush green and the feeling of complete connection!
