Lovely to walk with you... and what wonderful BLUE bird at the end. Things here are still just beginning... but down the hill a little bit, lilacs are blooming.
What great photos and what a wonderful place to be able to hike!
Beautiful pictures - in sharp contrast to life here in New Zealand, with trees on fire with autumn hues and mushrooms poking up beneath the trees. Enjoy the warmth and the color!
Is that Golden Seal in the second picture from the top? Your country side looks so fresh and green. We're drying up and blowing away here.
Valerianna - oh how I'm envious of your lilacs. It is too hot for them to flourish here.
Joel - I'd love to visit New Zealand some day - your description is so beautiful.
Mamabeaks - the white deer is still eluding me, but someday...Thank you!
WOL - The yellow flower is yarrow I believe. This was cultivated in my local park, although it likely grows wild too. We've had tornadoes and lots of rain in the last month, so it is very lush and green.
Yes - so beautiful.
So gorgeous and inspiring. I love the blue bird!
Looks like Blogger ate my comment - It has been misbehaving of late. Is that second picture from the top goldenseal? Love the little blue bird.
great pictures :)
what a gorgeous little blue bird, what sort is he?
WOL. I think blogger "ate" a lot of comments!!! That second photo is goldenseal - I only know that because the park planted them and have little placards to identify. It likely grows wild here too. And thank you for stopping by:)
Carmen - Thanks. I love to share my walks and observations.
Aaron Paul - It is called a Blue Bird and you are right about the "he" as well. The males are more colorful and have a little flame-tinted chest. Thought it was adorable and someone told me they are supposed to bring one luck!
What alovely title for this post - like the other commenters I love the bluebird, what a wonderful vibrant blue he is.
Beautiful images, my heart is always mended & filled with joy when i walk in woods. x
Rowan - thank you so much and glad you enjoyed!
Ruthie - exactly how I feel. I use it as cheap therapy. Nature cures everything.
What a beautiful woodland getaway. Thank you for sharing you lovely pictures,Tricia
Tricia - this park is named after a white doe and there are supposed to be more of them in the area. I will continue my quest to see one. How cool would that be? In the meantime, I'll always share the gifts of mother nature.
The flowers are so lovely. What a gorgeous park! It makes me a tad homesick, as I now live in the prairies and there really isn't anything like that here! Thank you for sharing the photos.
Hermes - thank you. Blogger made you disappear from this post for a bit, so glad to see your comment back. Jno - we'll go to this park when you come visit. Margaret - so glad you enjoyed. NC is very, very green right now.
Well, Blogger is being difficult but I will try again. These are wonderful photos. I am addicted to photos of mysterious forests, and you have a couple of great ones here. What is the blue bird? Is it an indigo bunting? We don't have them here.Julie, Celtic Lady
Julie - indeed Blogger has been "now you see it, now you don't" with comments:) Thank you! On this particular day, I went out late and the light was just magical. That little bird is simply a "Blue Bird" - this one a male, more colorful than the females. If we have Indigo Buntings, I'd guess they are very rare to spot.
