Stone, Water, Earth and Sky – A Woodland Walk

Moss on the Piazza

The moss on the piazza in front of  the house begins to turn lush and green as we begin the walk into winter. I  went on a woodland walk  to see if I could find any more moss to photograph, but I found much more.

I also saw a rivulet running cheerfully through the woods,

Stones made a complicated pattern.

and turned the sky blue behind the birches. Stone, water, earth and sky.

This was my woodland walk in Heath on Wordless Wednesday. For more click here.

  • Beautiful images, Pat! We’ve had no snow yet here, and it’s been so cloudy and gloomy–your photos remind me of how beautiful winter can be. Seeing those stones piled up remind me of one of my favorite poems, Frost’s “Mending Wall.” Thanks for taking us along on your walk!

  • Pat

    Rose – So good to hear from you. Yesterday was beautiful – and so is today in a misty moisty way.

  • A beautiful walk! And such lovely photo … thanks for taking me alone with you!
