“There is a secret garden where miracles and magic abound, and it’s available to anyone who makes the choice to visit here.” ~Dr Wayne Dyer To me, the 'secret garden' has to be woodlands.  Where you never know what is around the corner or the next tree. And when you stumble on bluebells growing proudly … Continue reading Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #63 – Magical

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #52: Serenity

Serenity... the topic for last week's Lens-Artists challenge set by Patti. There is nothing more serene than sitting on a bench in woodland, admiring nature at it's best and listening to the breeze blowing through the trees as it mingles with bird-song.

Pooh Bridge

Yesterday, the sun was shining and we decided to take a drive out.  As we are now in the winter months, some places we like to visit are closed for the winter.  Anyway,  one of the things I love doing is going for woodland walks.

Silent

Woods I part the out-thrusting branches and come in beneath the blessed and the blessing trees. Though I am silent there is singing around me. Though I am dark there is vision around me. Though I am heavy there is flight around me. by Wendell Berry One of my favourite places to visit is Ashenbank … Continue reading Silent

Wednesday RDP – COMEBACK

Now the Ragtag Daily Prompt of Comeback was no problem to me.  When I visit these woods, they also seem to say 'Comeback' to me.  I just love walking around those woods, and as the woods are local to me and renowned for their bluebells, there is no hesitation in hearing their 'Comeback' call.
