This is my third Spring hiking in Hot Springs National Park and as in years past a glorious experience. Nature is unfurling in a colorful display of blossoms from the tops of Trees to the Forest floor. During our hike my husband Rick and I are looking up into the Trees at one moment and then down to the trail edges. Each branch has newly forming leaf buds or delicate blooms. Autumn Leaves on the Forest floor are splashed with color as Wildflowers push up into the sunlight. I feel as if the Forest is in that beautiful time between a deep sleep and being fully awake. A moment hovering between two worlds delicately balance on the edge of time. A nursery filled with new life waiting patiently to spread their Leaves, Petals and Wings in celebration of spring.
We move through the Forest taking care not to disturb the grace of the spring renewal.
Much Love to ALL!
