nature, St. Francis Woods

Bliss after the Rain

I took my dog for a walk today in the St. Francis Woods, a beautiful piece of wooded land on the grounds of a convent.   We go there a few times a week if the weather is good and today it was especially beautiful. We just had a lovely downpour and the woods were abundant in fragrance.  I inhaled several times and just the scent alone made me feel joyful to have such a gift of nature so close to my home.  The greens were lush and the sun was setting through the trees.  I couldn’t resist snapping a photo with my iPhone.  It captured perfectly the essence of the beauty I was experiencing at that moment.

While walking, I was listening to some of my favorite Beatles songs.  This one was especially fitting for this happy place.

  1. Lovely! We had some much needed rain last night. Just the sound of the rain on the windows, sills and other objects made the world seem safe and cozy!! And I swear I could hear the plants whispering “Thank you!!”!!
