Think(ing) Green Thursday

Think(ing) Green Thursday is hosted by Michelle at Rambling Woods Green.

This is an area near my home called Bennett's Bog. I have enjoyed many hours wandering through the bog. There are a few trails through the woods and around the open space. Lots of birds and other creatures. And if you know where to look, there are some very rare tiny orchids and other wild flowers.

This time of year it isn't really possible to enter. We have had a great deal of rain, and you would probably find yourself sinking below the surface.

There are such places near most of our homes, unless we live in the center of a big city. Even in Metropolis, parks offer us some place to spend a little peaceful time for relaxation where we can commune with Nature and escape from our busy, hectic daily life.

Trees provides us with shade, and act as home for many living things. We get our oxygen from trees too. It is always soothing to see trees, tend to remind us about the beauty of nature.

This is so beautiful. I wish we had more park like areas on our side of the island.

Your picture is a reminder of what was here where we live. Now is it 18° and snowing.

Thanks for the visit.

This looks like my kind of place. There is nothing I like better than to walk in the woods and reflect on things.

I love bogs, with their peat and pitcher plants! Walking on them can be a bit disconcerting, though. Who knew the ground could shake like jello? Your lovely photos bring back many fond memories. Thanks, Bobbie!
