Back to Sunday Strolls

One of my favorite trees.

It's home to many of the forest fairies.

 Lovely shadows marching down the path.

Our cautious, but ever curious cows.

Crown of thorns. Careful here.

 Beautiful bark from the Japanese maples. Color amongst the gray and black of winter.

 Sweet, furry magnolia bud, poised in anticipation of spring.

 The hellebores or Lenten roses are beginning to bloom. They refused to raise their heads and smile at me. Stubborn ladies.

It's Sunday. Pretend you are in church. I can almost hear the choir, but maybe it's the cows.

I love these naked arches.
Best to all, ellen.

Thanks for taking me along on your walk. I loved the red of the Japanese maples and the "naked arches" are must have quite a production when they are filled.
