moss, mushrooms, lichens & "the loops"

Our street is attached to a couple of cul-de-sacs that we refer to as "the loops." The short people in my house consider a slow walk around these to be more than enough adventure and exercise. I challenge myself to make peace with this familiar route and see it with fresh eyes each time. More often than not I bring along my camera and see what I can discover.

Baby shower gifts!

The stuffed balls – ahem – yet again (see them here and here!) but also a matching bunting for the nursery. That was one of my very first sewing projects way back when. Actually, looked like I wimped out and let my friend do the sewing part.

the quiet forest floor

I took these photos at the end of the day when the sunlight was casting a golden glow on the forest floor. I love the lush green aliveness that can be found in the forest even on the microscopic level.
