Whispers in green

WHispers_1

Yellow whispers in a big old sea of green.

That is what this Yellow Columbine felt like on a recent hike into the forests nearby. A rainier than typical spring and early summer has the forest looking green as green can be and even a large patch of Columbine growing strong could only mustard a whisper in that sea of green yet sometimes a whispers is all you need.

Forest Treasures

Teasures_1

Finding wild Orchids growing in the forest always feels like finding a little treasure, a treasure offered by the forest itself. Sometimes the treasure is small and hidden deep in the undergrowth as was the fairy slipper above.

Other times the treasure sits alone in the forest waiting for you to some along as this spring coral root did on recent day.

And every once in awhile the treasure sings out to you saying look at me as the Striped Coralroot has a habit to do.Treasures_4Any time I find these orchids growing in the forest it does indeed feel like finding a small treasure that brightens the day.

Super baby bunny

Wait, whats that rustling in the bushes.
A bird..no
A mouse…no
It’s super baby bunny!

Smaller than a squirrel yet bigger than a mouse with quadruple  the cuteness of both. Mightily hopping onto rocks and eating every plant that gets in their way.

Super baby bunny brings brightness to start the day.

Have a wonderful weekend.
