In the Woods

Of all the wonders of nature, a tree in summer is perhaps the most remarkable; with the possible exception of a moose singing "Embraceable You" in spats.
~Woody Allen

These are wonderful nature pieces.

Once I got the orientation correct in my head (the rowboat was the vital clue), I fell in love with the River Exe in the mist by Harper. Stunning!

These are beautiful Tabatha. Wouldn't it be so delicious to go out in that River Exe at that time? I loved the links too & will share them with my staff. Great sources! Thank you.
