a(nother) stroll through my parents' woods

I've taken you on this journey before, but there's always more lovely views to be found here...

the clearing by the camper
after a winding trail through the wooded driveway, we reach the clearing. hubster here, is noticing how low the creek gets in early august. the camper stands just to the right of this picture

stump love
dad must've been feeling a little too romantic to burn this heart-shaped stump
and gave it a fire-poker arrow instead  ;)

took a wrong turn in albuquerque
taking the trail deeper in the woods, the trees get so dense it feels like evening.
i kind of like this guy who tried heading east about twenty years ago

central wisconsin's beauty
my favorite path takes us past big beds of ferns

up ahead. see it?
...and provides a slight glimpse of our destination

past some wilflowers
a clearing offers some wildflowers

milkweed in bloom
...and milkweeds blooming

sky box
beyond, sits dad's sky box

Dad wasn't in the woods with us this day, and he keeps the ladder folded up on itself and locked, so we just walked around a bit more before heading back.

It was a peaceful and gorgeous, summer day. Hope you're enjoying the same!

What a gorgeous post! Thanks for taking us through the woods with you! I love the photo of the Milkwoods but the one of the Skybox was especially good!

I like the heart-shaped stump! Just the right kind of cheesy for my taste haha.

Good thing it wasn't burned ;)

My photo
fly over country, United States
this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
