A Walk in the Deep, Deep Woods




We went for a walk in the deep, deep woods. The leaf covered ground surrounded us. Squirrels scampered away as we approached. A hidden world coming to life beneath our feet, her treasures waiting to be found.

Watch where you step or you may squish little creatures!




Delicate ferns unfurl, their fuzzy stems coming to life.




I thought I was taking a picture of a may apple, 
but do you see the hidden treasure in the bottom of the picture?




Delicate morsels peeping from beneath the dead forest floor covering.


 
Do you like morel mushrooms? We call them molly moochers.
They are worth the trek into the deep, deep woods.
Don't you agree?

  2. Hi Janet, I just discovered one more thing you and I have in common--walking in the woods. It's a love I learned from my father when I was a wee bit of a girl. Thanks for sharing!

  3. It's nice to step outside our worlds, outside our homes, into nature and see what's happening. Spring is such a celebration of regrowth ... Happy walking to you :)

  4. Good morning! Great pictures Janet. There is so much detail, I could just stare at them for hours. I can smell the damp mossy smell of the dirt. I can hear the crunch of the leaves beneath your feet and taste the spongy buttery taste of the mushroom! There are few things more wonderful in life than a trek into the deep deep woods. Your pictures pull me in and make me feel like I am right there with you! Have a lovely Saturday and a great weekend ahead. Delisa :)

  5. Janet,
    What a nice walk in the woods. I loved the photos of the ferns and the mushrooms. I would have loved to been able to take the walk, too. It was so nice to take the hike with you on your blog. Thanks for the walk through the woods. I can see your writing a poem.
