I can’t get enough of those speckled berries. They belong to False Solomon’s Seal, and I am in love with them. The ripe ones are wonderful too, but the spotted not-quite-ripe beauties are like candy or beads or fancy party balloons.

Maidenhair ferns are another sight I can’t get enough of. I love their unusual, spirally growth pattern. Ferns and moss have always been magical to me.

Moss, with part of a Maple seed caught in its fuzzy little fronds. Fabulous. I hope you guys like pictures of the woods, because you’ll probably be getting a lot of them in the near future.
