“Late Spring on the Trail” – Secord Forest
“When we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world.”
― John Muir
I’ve spent a lot of time of the trails this year, watching the earth grow greener with every passing day. The brown forest floor literally exploded with life, which kept expanding,growing, thriving and eventually blossoming with flowers, providing beauty for me and nectar for bees and butterflies.
The forest has drawn me into her bosom like never before. I’m noticing fine details, taking the time to really see the complexity and interconnectedness of the soil, the plant, and animals. This really surprised me, as I have always considered myself an ‘outdoors’ person. Yet, now I find myself going deeper, learning about the plants names, their cycles, and environment at a whole new level.
The image above speaks to me of this journey, taken as a whole, it’s a forest trail, yet when carefully considered, the individual elements reveal themselves, drawing you into the details and shadows. Where the trail leads in unknown, yet not a thing to be feared, into the green.
