Hibernation started early in the Sweet Little Wood! We saw our chance for a long weekend and grasped it with two hands. It was so glorious we are still floating in the bliss of a relaxing family and fun filled time.
We got out into nature which is pretty spectacular this time of year, so because not a scrap of crafting was done I will leave you with this view of our adventures: Hendy Woods in autumn: our local redwood grove.
The Redwoods in Autumn are just coming to life.
And evidence of summer’s abundance remains
The heat of summer has gone and moist cool air encourages the little green flourishes to arise.
But the evidence of past lives remain.
And the wood cycle flourishes
There are bridges to magical kingdoms.
And places where the fey stalk the living.
But take care when crossing bridges
for the trolls are looking for lunch.
Wonder at how the tiniest cones produce the biggest trees.
And imagine the baby bird that found its way out of an egg the size of a small acorn.
Its a place to sit and wonder,
at the magnificence of creation.
Where trees can look like lions…
… ahem… and other things.
Its worth remembering that bees live in old tree stumps… for when you put your foot in a bee’s nest.
Savor it all and enjoy the ride.
