Into the fairy woods...

Hello ladies,

Would you like to take a walk with me through the Wildflower Preserve? Come explore the sunlit creek, stop by the log cabin, meet a gregarious frog, find dainty yellow lady slippers and be tempted along a mossy path deep into an enchanted wood.  

Virginia Bluebells

Cascading water brings tranquility in sight and sound. 

The creek is a mirror where the trees gaze. 
Purple Phlox

When can I move in?
The chimney is shaped a bit like a bottle of BB Couture nail polish. 
Such starry flowers!

A view from the stone bridge.
Taking a bath. 
He hopped around to greet me. 
And tried to steal a kiss!
Others at the local watering hole are a bit more demure. 
Yellow lady slippers!
The flower would make a suitable boat for a faery queen. 

The newly emerging ferns look like they are stretching after a long sleep.

The red flowers make me think of firecrackers.

Azaleas gone wild!

A mossy path beckons...

White flowering trees weave their branches through the green canopy. 

 Happy  painting, ladies!


  1. I love looking at flowers! When I was young I loved looking in the woods and along trails such as this for mushrooms as I thought they made the perfect umbrellas and chairs for fairies! Thanks for such a great post :D
