One Beautiful Thing ~ seven
This month, I thought I would take you along to some of my favourite places. I love to roam around this beautiful park...especially in the spring and fall.
This time of year, the rolling hills are covered with wildflowers. A royal carpet of purple and green. And some little yellow buttercups here and there. And these pink ones...they are called Shooting Stars. Isn't that sublime?
It is a quiet place next to the sea, scattered with old Garry Oaks which are just starting to bud. And those old oak trees are why I love this place so much in the fall. When the leaves drop, their gnarly twisty trunks and branches are exposed, and they look haunting and lovely amongst the rich mocha hues of tall grasses and bramble.
Something about this place reminds me of my childhood, even though I didn't live here back then, and had never set foot on these beautiful paths. It's a place that comforts me like no other space.
