Reflection, A Black Labrador and Woodland Swing

04 May

1. We spent all afternoon in the West Family Woods delighting in the bird song, the flowers, the variety of trees and being with the family. The stream that runs through the woods is very beautiful and home to many tadpoles. (See my Weekly photo challenge)

2 The family have five lovely Black Labradors. The photo is of Willow, the oldest of the five, sister of one and mother of another. Having been bitten twice by strange dogs as a child, I’m somewhat wary of being around dogs but these are all beautiful and beautifully trained.


3. There’s a swing seat in the woods. I could have sat and rocked for hours taking in all the sounds, smells and tranquility of the woods.

    We have a swing like that on our front porch, and it’s my favorite place to sit and read, but I believe I would like your swing in the woods even better!

    That swing is in just the right place for one intent on spending time alone to listen to the wind, the birds and all the sounds nature blesses us with!

    It is hard to not love a swing that hangs from such a magnificent tree. When I bought my current house the first home remodel effort was to put up a swing.

    Love the swing in the woods… and the creek reminds me of the one behind our house where I grew up…
    We have a swing similar now under a big tree in our backyard…favorite resting place…
