I started my week with a walk. It was brisk and I wasn't feeling so great, but I bundled up and did it anyway. I'm glad I did. When I headed out, the sun was barely up.I crunched through the leaves, so sneaking up on my wild friends wasn't in the cards, but I could hear them crunching too.
This snarly old tree always reminds me of the thumping trees in the Wizard of Oz, especially when its branches sway and creak on windy days.
There's so much beauty...
I walked on the rock ledge.
Of course, Bruno was with me. He adores a walk in the woods.
Looks like a cozy place to curl up...Bruno investigated it thoroughly!
The woods are full of amazing texture...this is a shag bark hickory. Love it.
Such character in this bark.
I love walking under nature's gate. It signals that I'm close to home.
I remember, it was a walk like this that inspired this quilt. It may be the first one I finish when the quilts for the book are done.
Off to work. Hope your week had a great start too!
