My Woodland Walk

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, and I admit, I was feeling quite antsy, so I decided to take a walk at Nolde Forest.  Of course, my camera came along with me!  Here are a few things I found!

Virginia Cowslip

This was planted in a garden near the Sawmill Area.  I checked my handy dandy Peterson's Guide to Wildflowers, and this in a Virginia Cowslip.  It's a beautiful trumpet flower, and perhaps the prettiest find of the day!

Trumpet Honeysuckle
The honeysuckles were beginning to bloom, and the fragrance was absolutely heavenly!

Waterlily Buds?
These were found in the North Pond, quite odd looking, wouldn't you say?  They look like tiny green hippos!  I'm thinking perhaps they are waterlilies before they open, there was one nearby.  I'll have to go back soon and see what these become!  Stay tuned!
Mayapple flower

This a a Mayapple flower.  the top leaf is huge, and the flower is present under the leaf.   I was so happy I finally found these in flower!


I woke up to this pretty Etsy Treasury...Colorfulness.  What a great way to wake up on a  gray day!
Enjoy your day!  May you find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

New Tourmaline Earrings!

I've finally done it...I have been wanting tourmaline for ages, finally bought it.  Then it sat.  For months.
These are one pair of earrings I've made, and listed them in my Etsy shop.  I hope you like them!

A little bit about tourmaline:  Tourmaline is found in a rainbow of colors.  Ancient legends say tourmaline has traveled along a rainbow picking up all the colors.

Tourmaline in general, is believed to promote self confidence;  allows for increased awareness in yourself, and others.

Labradorite Tourmaline Sterling Silver Earrings
The pink Tourmalines are just stunning with the green/gray of these labradorite beads!

Wishing you a fabulous day!
