Enjoy the view

The woods around here have gotten lush. It seems that one day the persimmon, poplar, and cotton were holding out until the sun dealt them a better hand and then the next day everything rushes to join the party.

Walking down the barn road today, the canopy was as lush as a velvet curtain. Last week there were stretches of sunlight along the road, but this morning it was in total shade.

Soon, the wild hydrangeas will bloom and this road will have puffs of white hydrangea clouds on both sides of the road.

In a few months, it will be hot enough by 9 a.m. to bake biscuits in the dash pocket of my truck. When "warm" weather gets here, Jilda and I will have to walk while the coffee is making. But until then, we plan to enjoy the view.


  1. Awww, narrow tht down to one path and it looks like much of the Appalachian trail.

    Thanks, Sherry & JLD

  2. Lovely. When Spring arrives she makes her presence felt.

  3. Beautiful landscape and serene environment, really loved it.

  4. It looks nice and cool for a walk under those trees. I don't envy the humid heat.
    We are still surrounded by high water.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. I would love to walk this path. Enjoy the warmth.

  6. The path feels like a protective cocoon.

  7. Our trees are just starting to leaf but soon our woods will look very much like yours...I will also enjoy our view!
