Of Scot's pine and rhodedendron

Once through the fields, we followed the old carriage road around the side of the hill and turned off to weave up through the woods again; this time, surrounded by the tall straight trunks of the Scots Pine, which towered above us as we climbed.

The path was edged with ferns and brambles; a whole carpet of green, in the midst of which were beautiful patches of bright pink and purple rhodedendrons.


  1. pretty pictures.

    yeah, i thought i did pretty well shopping, myself. and you definitely don't throw away twenty bucks.

  2. What a beautiful forest - and the rhodos must have been a surprise! The scene is similar to any in the woods around Pondside - just lighter and brighter, as our woods are dark and moss-draped.
