The companion piece to Foggy Autumn, this one has bright new spring leaves and a slightly bluer forest.

It is sad sometimes when we go back to a place and things have changed.  I don't know if you have ever read any CS Lewis, but he talks about a deep inward place he longs for, he calls it his North Country, but he especially feels that longing when a particular landscape calls to him, or a particular song.  It almost sounds like something you are describing, a place where our realities do meet up with our dreams.  Anyway, once again, thanks for sharing. You have a way with words. :)

you are welcome! tho i will now admit to my rueful smile as i looked at your beautiful monterey pine quilt. had had an old hankerchief of my grm since childhoood. was a monochrome of the rocky windblown coast and the iconic pine that stood against it. so...young adult wandering the coastal highways of california...made a special trip to see "my" tree while visiting w friends in monterey. was heartbroken to see ..the houses..the cables ...sigh!

life is so seldom seen in reality as seen in our visions. ?? ..another "oh, well" life lesson lollol!

winter in a redwood forest. snow uncommon, but the long, drooping branches of fern type needles of deep dark green. or even a stand of cedar with new fresh layer of snow to weigh down the drooping branches. add a post storm mistinq of fog layering and drifting through the stands of towering tress, tangling in the clusters of ferns and wild rhodies below.

i loved climbing through the hills of winter when i lived in the high sierras years ago. sitting on a fallen giant, and listen, to the eloquent quiet...

Thanks Susan, I haven't thought about doing a winter one, it would be harder to pull it off I bet - unless I can use holly and red berries....hmmm. You might have a GREAT idea. Thanks! <3
