How still it is here in the woods. The trees
Stand motionless, as if they do not dare
To stir, lest it should break the spell. The air
Hangs quiet as spaces in a marble frieze...
From Solitude by Archibald Lampman
This is a great time for a little jaunt in the woods. I unexpectedly found the Trillium blooming. It has such a sweet little pink bloom. I've found them before on the property, but not for a while, so this was such a delight! There are also a lot of Solomon's Seal around - graceful little plants with a tiny little drop of a flower. My favorite tree in a tree still doing well - I wonder how long it will grow. There was lots of fallen limbs about, I was a little worried about one falling on my head! I knew the Sweet Shrub was in bloom, but they are so hard to find. Their little brown bloom is very difficult to see, but I looked until I found one. I think they smell like cantalope.
Go find a wood to walk in and see what you can see and smell. I promise you won't be disappointed!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a great Friday.
