The Foxes are Back

I discovered the first Fox Glove of the season, not yet full with flowers. It was a sign of more beauty to unfold on the landscape that I so enjoy. It is with gratitude I attempt to reflect to others the joys of connecting with Nature.

Something Missing

Someone told me they thought that the old dead pine that had stood proudly at the edge of the Lupine Field had fallen over. It must have been gone for a couple of months and we didn’t notice it. Things disappear in life the same way.

Wild Vines
