Once upon a time,
went for a carriage ride in the forest
I knew I was on the right track,
A heart-shaped mossy rock!:
And a lovely pair of Flag Iris beside a wishing pool:
I think this one granted me three wishes:
And remember the baby ferns I showed you a few blogposts back?
in this magical forest,
they were already grown up:
And the good luck
even paid me a visit:
We chatted a bit,
and then he said he had to fly off
Ater all, he had other people
to visit that day, too:
We ended our trip by selling our souls to the Devil.
Wait a minute.
That wasn't the Devil.
It was the Devil's Paintbrush!:
We agreed to go back again soon.
Because, as you know....
the enchantment doesn't end
in the forest.
Do you realize how CLOSE the DEADLINE is
for the JULY's free PHOTO CONTEST is?????

oh wow. that heart shaped rock is fabulous...beautiful...and of course i love the dragonflies...
I'm enchanted...love the moss covered heart-shaped rock!
Beautiful pictures! I love your story too, I hope it was a happy ending ;)
The iris picture (the one with the water behind) is particularly lovely, Joan. But the mossy heart is beautiful, too. Oh, heck! They are ALL great. As usual. :-)
Brian: I loved that heartshaped rock too! Dragonflies are amazing, aren't they?
Wanda: me too! Some folks find heart shaped things all over the forest and put them in their blogs too.....I don't find too many so I loved catching this one.
Biana: It is always a happy ending out there in nature. ha
DJan: Thanks so much....nature gives these to me on a silver platter. Luckily!
I really like the trails along the North Shore at the different rest areas or state parks. The trail down off of Cascade Falls has scenes like these. Great shots.
Hi Joan, Love that 'heart' rock.... the moss covering it is gorgeous... All of your other photos are great also. I especially love the Fern photo--due to the lighting.
Love the Devil's Paintbrush.. What a gorgeous color.
I think this is my favorite set of photos!
What beautiful photos.
What a cool rock!!! It's so pretty! What an awesome find :oD
This would make a beautiful photobook story! Loved this!! LOL at the devil comment!
I envy you your outdoor time! Did I already say that once recently??? Very enchanting!
I just posted a link to your site on Pioneer Woman's Ree Drummonds photo contest. A commenter (#3) stated she wished there was a photo contest for amateurs. Hope she finds you and joins in the fun this month.
What a delightful adventure you went on ! The heart shaped rock is awesome.
I am enchanted by your story and beautiful photos. The heart shaped mossy rock is a fabulous find!
My photo will be coming to you soon, as usual I'm trying to decide between two photos.
These are wonderful photos. I liked them all but especially the heart-shaped rock.
Your magical forest is wonderful as are all your beautiful photos.
I loved the Devils Paintbrush. What a beautiful color.

VaBookworm: It sure was..I hardly ever find nature made heart shaped anythings. ha
Shelley: I would LOVE to write children's books and put photos to them. Shall we go into business together? Scout would be perfect in some stories.ha
Cathy: I haven't gotten out HALF as much as last year because we have been renovating the house across the street from us as a Guest House. We are almost done (whew!)
