Sunday Serenity...

On our walk today we came across so many nests.
I love to look at them, up close, where you can really appreciate all the fine detail.
It rained a little early in the morning which made the woods smell amazing
under the crunch of the fallen leaves.
Only a few leaves remained on the trees we passed.
Dry and crisp
they were still beautiful ♥
Nests built by the waters edge...
and high up in treetops...
and gorgeous
mossy
fallen tree limbs ...
I came home with pockets filled with nature's gifts that I will use to create Christmas gifts...
heart shaped stones {my grandson started me on this collection ... now I find them on nearly every walk}
birch bark {to wrap around candles}
miniature pine cones {to create Christmas picture frames}
twigs {for picture frames & twig stars}
Walk
as if
you are kissing the Earth
with
your feet
~Thich Nhat Hanh~

Oooh I just love your beautiful Nature walks Deb... and so adorable that your little grandson appreciates Nature as well... I too gather little heart shaped rocks as I find them... one of my favorite quotes I put on my blog is "follow your heart, it knows the way"... wouldn't it be wonderful to find a whole little trail of heart shaped rocks to follow!... much love, xoxo Julie Marie
