With the rains this week our woods have been simply amazing. They are pretty anyway but after a rain something simply changes and they become magical! Perhaps that’s why I named them Raindrop Woods! Though pictures can never do them justice I always have to get out there and try to capture the beauty with my camera!
Our creek had a little water trickling through it after the rain! That is always a reason for excitement. I love to have actual water in our creek!
I love the stones beneath the surface. I love the sparkles on the water! I love the greenness of the grass that is happily being refreshed by a stream of splashing water.
And I love the flowers! They add dashes of color to finish off the beauty!
I love water! It just adds a touch to the landscape that nothing else can! It can be fun, beautiful, or even a little bit scary! Water simply adds a splash to life!
And speaking of fun, (and splashes) we have this lovely little tire swing out in our woods! It fits right in with the water wonderland and would definitely add fun and splashes to a summer swim, if the creek got full enough that is!
But, the creek is not the only part of the woods I like! In fact, I love it all!
I love the great, green trees that spread their leaves out and shade me from the sun!
I love little meadows. Meadows, by the way, are perfect for picnics like this one!
I love hearing the birds sing, and the squirrels scold. And I love watching the cows graze contentedly in woodland meadows. I love the misty, adventurous atmosphere. I love the colors and warm breezes!
And I love how our road runs right past the Raindrop Woods so we can always see it. Whether we are going home or leaving for a trip, it is right there smiling at us as we drive past!
All in all, I can honestly say, I love my Raindrop Woods!
