The quarter-acre woods

Lenten roseWhat is it about wildflowers in the spring? I didn't fully appreciate how much I missed the flowers that were decimated by honeysuckle over the years. Now they're coming back, and I can scarcely leave my kitchen window; I gaze across the woods and down the hill, where blue and gold flash throughout the day, interspersed with purple and white. My five-year woodland project is into its sixth year, and it has been worth all the hard work. I envision the woods looking more beautiful every year.

The woods never cease to amaze. Pity the lost who no not the woods; in the woods exist God's wonders of life and beauty. Enjoy the smallest of mushrooms and ferns to the greatest of hickories, beech, & oaks while dancing through the understory of beauty, Steve :-)
