A Natural Pause

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving– the weather was perfect here– good enough to take a nice walk along our new canal path and feed the ducks in the nearby park!

However, the days to follow were not so nice. I have still have not had a chance to plant anemone bulbs like I wanted, and I hoping this weekend will be the one, or they are going in containers!

I went to my parents and celebrated Thanksgiving this past Saturday, and it was cold and rainy. I was able to sneak out of the house and go take a walk in the woods. I escaped to the pines my father planted when he was a boy. Of course, I couldn’t help but take a picture. Or two. Enjoy.

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous! What beautiful and atmospheric photos! So your father planted these trees? That is so wonderful to think he did this and to watch them grow into a beautiful woodland. Were there woods here before or just open land?

    1. Hi Kate– yes, my father did as a young boy. He was a member of the 4-H club and he planted more than 3,000 pine trees as a project. The hill was a pasture before he planted all those seedlings. That was about 50 years ago, so it’s really neat to see pictures of the hill before it was a forest!

      1. Wow! I think that is just so special. There are very few people in life who get to plant trees like that and get to see them mature into such a wonderful place and what is even more special is that it will be there for generations hopefully, with a wonderful story attached to it.
