On the Forest Floor

One of the things about following a track in the woods regularly, you see things that you don’t see another time. Where we were staying near Spokane, our daily walks took us out along the same track, under the pines, alongside the river. While the season didn’t change much in the few days we were there, what I saw became more specific, like this flower against the fallen tree. Different times of day, too, presented the light in different ways as it shone through the trees. This familiarity is one of the delights to be had with the familiar.

We have been having rain for the last two or three days. Perfect days to go out and take pictures as everything is so clean, and perfect days to just be outdoors to smell the earth and new growth. Where I live, cloudy skies and rain are like hens teeth of late, so any excuse to be outside is welcome! We even had thunder and lighting, which was hard to believe.
