A walk in the woods









On this winter day of cold and gray, the girls and I slipped on our boots, gloves , scarves and jackets.  We walked towards the woods with a basket in our hands and something to cut with.  Not sure if we can find enough greenery to make a very large wreath, we continue walking down paths of golden weeds.  While we kept our eyes open for places that deer may have bedded down the night before.

Upon entering into the woods, we pulled branches of wild blackberries off our clothes that wanted to go with us.  Climbing over trees that have fallen across this weather creek, we hop from rock to rock surround by the slow rush of creek water.  We find our way through this little patch of woods that sits at the end of our land.

With each path we took , we found three to four different kinds of cedar trees.  Filling our baskets with snips from each tree, we spotted some wild red berries near by.  The basket soon was over run with berries, cedar, Leyland cypress and Douglas firs we headed for home.

We separated the greenery into piles across the old farmhouse table, and began to assemble our wreath. What a great time we had stomping through the woods together.  We love walking in
the woods enjoying nature any chance we get.

Thank you, for coming along with us for a walk in the woods.

Merry CHRISTmas,
