The Forest is no longer draped in its shawl of green, now it holds sleeping secrets waiting to emerge in the warmth of spring. Leaves randomly sprinkled along the trails remind us of the colorful past foliage that cradled us in 2011. Wildflowers are replaced by the colorful feathers of now revealed birds joined by the delicate beauty of fungi on rocks and logs. The Short Leaf Pines tower high above the sleeping Oak, Birch and Gum Trees creating a new canopy above us as we hike.
Open your Heart and eyes to the beauty in the winter Forest, revel in the simplicity of the sleeping sentinels. While some Trees sleep you will see glorious details once hidden beneath the green of spring and summer.
Love to ALL!
