i went to the woods


“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,

to front only the essential facts of life,

and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,

and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
~Henry David Thoreau


miss sadie {le pooch} and i went to the forest to hunt for morels

and to witness the delights of an early morning spring awakening…


lovely little blooms dotted the woodland…


i dub thee “faerie parasols”


curious conk fungi formations…


spring moss creeps along a patch of felled trees

{moss collected for a “moss graffiti” project…but no morels found beneath}


“excuse me, mr. box turtle, but have you seen the morels?”


ooo…a groovy natural green! {does this come in a pantone paint chip?}


the perfect spot to find forest magic {or a morel?}


oh!….rats…not a morel…


“ah, sir beetle, can you point me toward the mysterious morel?”


alas, no morels to be found today. the sudden onset of a summer-like spring

may prove to make the morel hunt more difficult. no matter ~ it’s all about the journey…


oh, and on my journey out of the forest ~ i finally captured a somewhat decent photo

of just a couple of the turkey vultures that nest nearby {notice the ombre sky!}


thank you for coming along on my forest journey. stay tuned for potential morel news ~ i hope!

{and the results of the “moss graffiti” project}
