The Deep Dark Woods

New reader, Helen, requested photos of the woods that I so often mention here.  I have a few handy, so I hope these will do. :)

Here we have a view of the woods from my roof:

The down side to the woods?  All this pollen!! This is the day after washing the car!  Oy, and imagine what this does to allergies!! AH-CHOO!!

But the great things far out number the bad!!

This is a morel mushroom.  People here adore these things.  Me, I could take 'em or leave 'em.  Served fried, they just taste...fried.  *shrugs*  They are the only wild mushroom I feel safe eating, as they are easily recognized.

Sometimes the woods yield wondrous things...

And the best part is the view from my bedroom.  Here you can see Eol peeking at a deer, just a few yards from the house.

You must live in Oregon, those pics could be from my yard a couple of years ago.

You must live in Oregon, those pictures could have been taken around my place.

Thank you for the woodland photos - it looks just as lovely as I imagined.
