France…a walk in the woods

The road leading off the main road continues past the “driveway” to my s-i-l’s house, past another house, and into the forest where, however, it becomes a trail rather than a road.  It’s the perfect place for a walk: past piles of cut trees, ant hills, another house, alongside the meadow, flowers everywhere, ancient stones covered with moss.  Perhaps there’s a bit of Celtic magic somewhere as well.

    Thanks for taking us along with you on this beautiful walk. I love that scraggly blue flower. Any idea what it is?

    It looks like a calm and quiet place to walk. What a blessing you were able to go there!

  5. Allan G. Smorra says:

    A lovely place for a walk, Janet. Your flower photos are beautiful. Excellent use of depth-of-field.

    Oh, my gosh, those stones blew my mind! They definitely look like human placements. Wow!

    • Marian, they are human placements, just rather old. 🙂 Sorry if my wording mislead you.

        Your working was as beautifully clear as your photographs, Janet — I was agreeing with you. It’s MY working that isn’t clear! heh! I’m just stunned to see them just sitting around in the woods, not surrounded by fences and studied by anthropologists. 😀

    I like those last flowers too, Janet. 🙂 I found some wild orchids while I was out this afternoon. Always exciting! Hope you’re ok now your daughter’s gone.

    Wonderful Janet! Is your sister in law French? Just figuring this all out!

  9. So beautiful. I think I did feel a bit of Celtic magic seeping from that deep green forest. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  10. Suzanne says:

    How lovely. There is definitely more than a whiff of the Celtic here. 🙂

  11. Su Leslie says:

    Lovely images Janet. What a wonderful-looking place.

  12. Thank you for taking me on your peaceful walk. I love all of the photogrpah but the moss on the rocks is very unusual. I haven’t seen many photographs of this type. Great captures on all.

  13. What a beautiful place to walk, and live! Your s-i-l is a blessed woman to be there!

  14. […] was I inquiring about this? I was trying to comment on Janet’s lovely post. I wanted to know the name of the flowers in the last picture. If you’re a flower guru, check […]

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
