A Golden Lakeside Hike

The sun was weak, recuperating after days of rain, although its rays were golden, coating everything it touched in a caramel glow as we wove our way through farmland until we reached an empty parking lot with enough spaces for all of us enthusiasts on this amazing and rare weather day.....

The newest issue of Rural magazine is "finally: here

I's been a while...despite starting early in the year and remaining on schedule all along... an unexpected delay happened at the printers. 

One that they couldn't solve, and took almost two weeks.. what can you do?  

Not much, in fact, all the emails back and forth to support took so long.....but good news, the latest issue of Rural magazine called Replenish is now ready if you are interested in purchasing a copy for yourself, or someone who might enjoy reading this keepsake magazine.

It's full of lovely photography and "well told" stories about how our contributors find ways to replenish themselves...printed in full color on gorgeously thick paper, this is an art book style magazine...well worth ordering.

It's a great read, and at 44 pages it's full of wonderful stories, and gorgeous images.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy click here to be taken to  Blurb's site.

Dear Winter...I think we need to see other seasons

Dear Winter...

I think we need to see other seasons...
Yes, I know our love for each other was a deep as the snow that's fallen almost every day since November...but lately you've been smothering me. 

I long for green shoots, and branches that are budding, and I need to see the ground once again. 
Dear Winter, let's break up
It's not as if you weren't faithful in sticking around, it's just that we are spending too much time about we give each other some space.
I've started to take you for granted, being with you all this time..and I'm finding my eyes straying towards Spring, dreaming of days outside without your chilly grasp...and I have to wonder what else there is out there for me.

Winter, this isn't goodbye
I can tell you don't do goodbyes easily...but, maybe we could set up a meeting once again after Autumn comes to visit.

I'm looking forward to Spring charming us with its bright days and sprouting greenery. And when Summer comes..…

Fungi, Forest, Fall And Fresh Air

The light is low now, slanting, with its golden fingers raking through the yet to turn color leaves.....
