Things I saw in the woods today, part 20
Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the natural world. As a very young thing I remember disappearing into shrubs and bushes and going to commune with the fairies therein. I was a solitary little kid and probably still am the same. Images like this tree which remains a favourite of mine in the woods near where I live now, mean everything to me. I could lay under this tree forever and simply gaze at it in wonder.
This last shot is the flowering plantain which is captivating with its halo of flowers. The plantain keeps the buttercups company and the two are inseparable in the meadows. Some plants just like being together like beet and nettle which are always found within very close proximity of each other.
