I knew exactly where I wanted to go on Mother's Day.
It was a place I had been before,
but had not dared to enter the fullness of its treasures because I was alone
(and having visions-LOL-of cougers and bears in the woods).
This time I brought
AKA my DH and, of course, our very charming but 'fierce', fearless
and snake fighter Eskie.
I think some of you already 'know' her.
After a brief attempt at freedom by this very onery, sometimes hormonal dog
we headed into this magical world
of mosses, ferns, foliage, wildflowers, trees, boulders, a creek and waterfall...
There is NO way to describe the green you see in the midst of this woodland...
my photo editing program can't even believe it and
keeps trying to adjust each photo away from the shades of
greens that really are there...
that's OK I just keep returning the color to its natural state as I smile because I want you to feel as surrounded by green as I felt...
call it a green immersion if you will:)
And then, before too long, you see it through the trees
the waterfall we had come to see; the falls I had SO longed to see on that day
when I 'saw' cougars and bears instead of the treasure I had wanted to see.
Little confession insert here please...
you actually see the waterfall a bit before this.
But you see, I liked this photo the best
that way you can be truly surprised should you ever enter this perfect paradise.
And then we reached...
well at least for this post.
FOUR more days to go...
and I found more treasures in the freezer to help me celebrate:)
Where is that hubby man when I need him?
He is a walking, talking, totally interactive encyclopedia of bird, wildlife, plant,
constuction, repair, etc knowledge. Perhaps I will be able, after a suitably delicious meal tonight, to share his great knowledge with me and then I can put names to the above blossoms and such...
or perhaps YOU can?
