After the Rains ... A Walk in the Woods

Spring is upon us, and the sun is finally peeking out from the rain clouds ... now and then.

Sissie and I took the opportunity of a cool, unsettled day to visit the forest, reviving childhood memories of tree forts and fairy-inspired games!

The critters were out taking in the brief moments of sunlight ...

While the runoff from the ditch above the canyon cut a chasm, guarded by a heart-shaped root!

(Guest Heart Thursday!)

The sun peeking through the storm clouds brought out the sparkling forest gems!!!

Even when the storm broke overhead, and the rain returned ... there was still beauty to be found ...

(Weekend Reflections!)

Thank you for joining us on our walk through the woods.
It was fun, wasn't it?


  1. I'm still marveling over that wonderful walk through the forests of our childhood. Such beauty yet to be found there. I love all of these photos--you have SUCH a gift. I am so honored to be your big sis, Sissyboo. ((hugs)) Absolutely gorgeous--these just truly fill my eyes to the brim.

  2. Fun and beautiful.. Isn't it nice to have a Sister to share your nature adventures with, Clytie.
    We are both so blessed.

  3. Everything just shines after a good rain shower! And I just loved all the pictures (except the spider) but since it was just a picture I'm okay with looking at it :) Thank you for reading my blog, I look forward to your comments. Fortunately, our yard isn't nearly as big as your 10 acres and I do know about those monsterous blackberry vines. Could you maybe rent a goat or two to help with the vines?
