Solace In The Woods




Though the first blush of Spring has transpired into lush blossoms, heady scents and a blanketing beauty beyond measure, the woods has yet to reveal the realm she guards with secrecy.

Just before the leaf buds open on the towering trees, creating a shaded canopy of concealment to the dark, rich earth below the warming rays of sunlight permeate, melting the last of the Winter's snow.

From beneath the carpet of moss and fallen leaves the fronds of ferns and the delicate trilliums reach up to the sunshine to revel in its glory.


As a human intruder I can only partake of this revered landscape as I seek solace in the woods...

How lovely... How beautiful... Thank you for bring us along...

Again I say, it's so sweet to see a new entry here, when I check my Google Reader. For some, 'tis true. That absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Gentle hugs,
'Aunt Amelia'

Perfectly serene post. Brings back memories of when my Mom and I used to take walks in the woods looking for trillium, lady's slipper, jack-in-the-pulpit, and more, and enjoying God's creations.
I love visiting your blog Susan!
