Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

It was a day. It was an ordinary day. It was the final day in the month of May. The last thing I expected was an encounter with Beauty.  I left my desk feeling tired and dispirited; then returned from the woods spirit-fed and joyful.

I posted these photos in a collage a few minutes ago. It’s pretty, but too small for detail, so here they are, individually, from the luminous pale meadow beauty to the good old ordinary green-eyes that stand at attention each day to face the morning sun.

    And what a glorious thing to wake up to. Thank you. After I’m caffeinated, you’ve convinced me to cancel or at least postpone the work I was going to do and get outside and see what’s been wrought in the Carolina woodlands.


  2. Phil says:

    Very nice!


  3. Gullible says:

    Whoa! What’s that freaky red thing that looks like a hairy ferris wheel?


  4. DSK says:

    Nice flowers! I’ve always liked seeing skinny flowers emerging from sandy soil. There’s something very fresh about it to me.


  5. Lovely, made my day too! What’s the name of the purple flowers?

    I don’t think there’s an ordinary day at the Longleaf. Beautiful photos.

    I’m glad you bring this beauty to me because I haven’t been taking the time to enjoy nature lately.


Speak. Leave a memory.
