And so I would like to invite you to kick back, put your feet up, and come with me for a virtual walk in the woods. Welcome to one of my favorite playgrounds.
It's such a lovely place. There is beauty here no matter which way you turn!
Or which direction you happen to look in!
I find such interesting things along the way, too. Like this piece of tree root that looks like a turkey foot. This little treasure came home with me. It now resides on the screen porch.
In the woods, the unusual abounds. Have you ever seen a tree complete with antlers before?
I came upon a large fallen tree that was hollowed out so perfectly it was almost a ready made dugout canoe! It's difficult to see the size of it in these photos, but it was quite big. I could easily imagine 3 or 4 petite native men taking it for a ride down the river, like a scene from a National Geographic documentary..
There are plenty of tiny delights to be discovered as well! Like this nibbled mushroom. I wonder who it was that dined upon it so daintily!
As a matter of fact, there are some pretty amazing varieties of fungi in these woods.
