I Can Feel May Coming…

The beech trees displayed their first leaves this week – and I am constantly in love with this time of the year. May – the most enchanting month of them all.

When the almost lime green beech leaves cast a veil over the last wood anemones…

… when the meadows shine with so many shades of green…

…and white

…and the old giant is still with us.

The rays of sun play hide and seek among the fragrant trees…

…and the tiniest saplings do as well.

I would not want to be anywhere else in the world – than in my forest and its meadows.



CFFC: Light Greens

Light green – signifies spring. To me it is the very essence of spring, and my beech forest.

Seven Day Nature Photo, Day Seven – Home

I have been nominated by my friend Sue, at WordsVisual, to take part in a challenge of a photo per day for seven days, of anything from the natural world. And every day I should nominate a new member.

On my last day, I must tell you the truth – nothing in Nature is more dear to me than ”my own” forest. The paths I walk every day, sitting under the giant beech tree, nodding to My Old Friend when passing – in whatever costume he greets me. I may travel the world and enjoy its beauty – but This, is my home.

Today,  my last entry, Day Seven.  Again, I would like to nominate all my followers and readers who love Nature and feel they can find time and joy in participating in  7-day Nature Photo. Again, my heartfelt thank you to all of you – and to Mother Nature.

Drizzle Dreams

Should i go out today…? I never have to wonder – I have got Totti, my lagotto.

Some days I wish I did not have to, but…often you will find yourself in another mood, in another weather. in other thoughts.

Even if I walk the same paths as the day before…

…I will find new views and new thoughts will enter my mind.

During the walk, the drizzle speeded up, and darkness laid a soft filter on everything.

Larchtree gold is shimmering…

…and grass is bathing in diamonds.

There is a special light in the darkness…

…and a soft forgiveness in the silence.

An Autumn walk with my family.
