Hello friends! When I looked out my window this morning there was a light fog and I was compelled to take a little New Years Eve walk in the woods.
The area where the fog gathers used to be a solid, deep and beautiful forest. It was a sad day when I saw the trees falling one by one. The only positive thing that came out of it was that it scared the deer so badly that they stayed away from my garden for two years. But alas! It didn't last forever and the last two years they've returned and dined on my tulips and impatience and hosta!
Nature is slowly reclaiming the once totally naked ground. It's not very pretty, as a matter of fact it's full of brambles and undergrowth so thick you can't walk through it - well, the deer don't seem to have a problem.
But from my vantage point, there is a kind of beauty in the fog.
I saw a lot of moss covered limbs.
I think they're so beautiful.
This brings back sweet memories of sweet youngsters whose imaginations knew no bounds...a few boards left from a once beloved tree house. Oh the fun that was had among the branches. It was a Jaws boat, it was a Star Wars ship, it was a Ghostbusters hideout.
Beautiful Lichen and Moss abounds in the woods.
And look at what is peeking through the leaves in the garden!!! Hyacinths are already thinking of Spring, and so am I!
Happy New Years! I hope you have a safe celebration. I pray 2012 will be a good year for one and all.
