and welcome to my new series called:
The Ladybug Chronicles
(I'm not sure if this picture was what inspired
my title or not but I remember being in
Ohio last year and having that
name come to mind and it
just stuck. It was intended to be a
page but after learning more about
blog pages, the format wasn't
going to work out.)
There's a huge part of
my heart that is forever wanting
to wander flower laden fields,
waiting to ramble up a
a canyon incline to see what's
on the other side.
stand at the edge of a cool
forest anxious to enter just
so I can feel the coolness of the earth
that has settled among the rocks
and ferns and moss that is
growing on decaying trees.
It's occupied by rabbits, snakes,
raccoons, deer and even skunks.
The scent of last year's shed leaves
rise up to greet me as they
lay scattered all around
while becoming part of the moist earth
that has been so sheltered from the sun by
the trees that gave them life.
I really was lost in some thoughts
and memories of our Sugartree woods.
It's one of my favorite
places to spend time. That's at our
place in Ohio where we spend as
much time as we can
in the summer and fall.
I grew up in the area and I have
4 siblings who live nearby as well
as many of my school mates from
primary school on up that I keep
in touch with. I think that it's
such a blessing to be able to do that.
It's just beautiful rolling
hill, farm country with acres and
acres of woods, all kinds of wildlife
just waiting to be made.
Actually some of my photos, stories and
experiences that I share will
be from time spent there.
There are deep ravines dark
with the cover of towering trees.
My daughter and I were chased by
parent hawks through those woods
as we were wandering and
exploring the stream
that trickles through the
A delicate Bluet...
As we walked on, we stumbled
upon their young in a huge nest in a
very tall tree. It was incredible to see them.
I just find the beauty of nature
so enriching to life....
peaceful and so full of
inspiration that I want to share it.
Just one of more of those
blessings that gather in my life.
And aren't we supposed to share
These photos are from the past two
years during our visits at Sugartree.
Since I shared so much about our special
place there, I decided to share some
of my photos that portrayed my
thoughts. I hope that you enjoyed them.
I've been promising a
cotton tail baby post and intended
to do that today but I thought
an introduction post would better suit
for now. I have a lot of details to put together for
the Cotton (Tale) post ;)
I have photos and videos and lots of
details to organize. I want to make it
a very nice little series
and I will work on them this weekend
and publish my first post next week!
Thank you so much for your visit.
Peace to you..
