corner view: box of tricks

On a day that started out as an emotional rollercoaster in our home, and everyone needed a change of scenery...




....a bourgeois patch of well tended grass, benches and ponds turned out to be just the trick we needed. After we crossed the bridge, that is.














A forgotten bicycle helmet at the other side of the stream (on the tree stump!)...
A drum set!
A waterfall..
A colosseum in the making...
A tin roofed birdhouse...
A tree covered with sap filled 'warts'...
Hard work getting rid of the sap...
Forgotten pathways...
The Mother Tree of the Forest (click it, then click it again, and imagine yourself up there)...
An avine aquaintance...
The inevitable empty beer cans...

Not bad, huh? That Mother Nature is full of tricks. 
And they work - we left for home feeling at ease, happy, loved and loving.

hmmmm! i can't decide if a drum kit in the middle of the woods is a good idea or bad! would love to see your rubber stamp cutting!

i'm with you - a good walk to shake off the bad vibes, i had to decide this in bed at 6 a.m. when i woke up grumbling in my mind about a gardening experiment that went wrong!

thx for reminding me... i need to get out of the house!

I love your interpretation. What a glorious day! Mother Nature certainly trumps the 'contest' with her box of tricks.
Your children will remember such outings even when they are grandparents---such a wonderful 'gift' to enjoy time as a family.

Great interpretation, nice series! I could nearly smell nature when looking at these pics! The atmosphere reminds me of stills of a music video! ;o)

Maybe it's just a matter of finding the right bridge, and crossing it.

Nice interpretation of the subject, thank you for sharing ;)

Imagine that, a drum set in the woods!

Mother Nature is always soothing. I think that's because she does not want anything from us we cannot give.
