A HIKE

It's fun to explore what is close to home-this trail has several banks and gullies where the sand erodes from around tree roots and expose some of the beauty that was under the ground.  These trunks are all connected-it was fascinating to follow the ways the touch!
This are is about 15' across with all of these 'straws' hanging down-
...which belongs to this 40' cabbage palm tree!
The width of this trunk-under the ground' would never be noticed until it is exposed!
I loved the way this trunk has a 5' hollow area!  Wouldn't it be fun to fill it with fairies and their houses!
And back at my house, the ground orchid is just covered with flower clusters since we had 1" of rain twice this last week!  The sunshine and rain has greened up the whole lawn--it is beautiful again!

  2. I love looking at tree roots like that - there is an area along one of the trails I walk where I can see them. Nice pictures!

  3. I've got the same thing happening along our creek. The erosion is exposing the root systems of some big birch trees we have out back. It's just a matter of time before they topple over. It's going to be a mess fishing them out of the creek when they go. They are huge.
