A Autum Hike

My sister Cyndi and I went on a hike this afternoon in the hills behind my new house. We spent the day looking for greens to decorate her shop with for open house. The weather was nice and chilly and the trees were magnificent. I can't remember the trees ever being prettier than they have been this year. Hope you guys enjoy these pics!



Carvings on an old oak tree done by my sisters and I over 20 years ago!

An autumn forest is almost magical, isn't it? I love the carvings. My husband has created a family symbol for our boys and they mark trees throughout the woods. I know one day they'll show their boys and recall their special days together.

Smiles,
