.: True beauty was found in the woods on this October day :.
Once again I wish to bring you with us into the woods...There is such beauty to be found all around us in nature in this new autumnal season. From each small detail revealed to us when we only look close enough to the fading of plants that are now past their flowering stage. With browning fragility they fall back towards the earth for a time of rest until next spring when the process begins anew.
.: There is such richness to be found in nature! :.
There also still is vibrant life growing up in these woods. The wildness of the weeds makes for my favorite type of bouquet. The purples, yellows and whites renew my spirits and share with us the artist in the woods who planted and placed everything so perfectly.
.: The sight of children running free in the forest, along a beach, or in a field always moves me! :.
We watch the children running along the trails. Little cheeks cool to the touch, kissed by the crisp autumn air rosey like Waldorf dolls. They dart off into the woods, finding rooms among the trees that they know only from their dreams. Ancient trees with curving limbs and a circle of toadstools that are so tall we can hardly believe our eyes. We stand in awe of this seemingly untouched piece of nature that brings our dreams to life!
.: Beautiful artistry in the forest at each turn! :.
The colors, shapes, and textures that are so creatively paired together on this October day are stunning. I feel as if we have stumbled upon a place that holds magic within each step. These lush woods are so full with life and beauty.This is what can happen when pure nature is left to thrive. Our eyes sparkle with these rich sights.
.: A horshoe crab shell that we noticed among the seaweed :.
As the forest meets the ocean we walk through some wildflowers to a spot where seaweed has been washing up for many years. Little fish jump in the waters, and shells are scattered at the shore from the seagulls flying overhead taking their mid-day lunch. We notice in the seaweed a fully intact Horseshoe crab. We take some time to sit with it for a while and notice each detail of this prehistoric creature!
.: Many rainbows where found today! :.
.: Red berries speckled by the dust of a fairy that flew overhead :.
I apreciate the delicate details encountered along the paths that we notice with our nature eyes. Tiny red berries scattered all across this forest are speckled with a golden dust that the fairies carry with them on their wings as they quickly fly past us overhead.
.: Looking for wildflowers that grew up tall all around us :.
.: Finding bouquets to be given one stem at a time! :.
Usually it is my daughter who likes to gather wild bouquets for the table. Today it was my youngest son who enjoyed sharing these sweet flowers with me. One by one he handed them to me and soon a beautiful bouquet appeared. This little one is growing up so beautifully along with his brother and sister right before my eyes!
.: Beautiful green and yellow leaves remind us of a watercolor painting :.
.: Clusters of yellow berries reminiscent of grapes growing wildly all around :.
The colors of this day announce themselves over and over again in various parts of the forest and sea. Yellows are mirrored through the berrries, Goldenrod, and Lichen growing along the shore.
.: Hidden among the reeds, she plays with seaweed and the tall grasses :.
There is such adventure to be found through the tall reeds that shelter us as we sit on the rocks. The waves gently splash up against the rocks and the scent of salt effuses into the air as we create 'Seaweed dolls.'
.: Honeysuckle grows wildly all around us, mingling with the red, yellow, and orange berries to create an aromatic bouquet in mid-air :.
.: The colorful leaves of autumn! :.
We enjoy being present in these days of autumn. How quickly it came to visit us and how quickly it moves into winter. We do not want to miss one moment of these woods while they are so warm with lush color!
