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}
