Charleen's walks in the woods

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Thought I would start off with a walk in the woods and try
to post some Beautiful Spring pic as things start blooming.
This is from my back door as I start down the trail.
Several friends have encourage me to try this to see how folks would like it.

A little farther down the trail, see the fallen pine trees? Got to get them moved , I have some rocks down here I want to move and I don't have a stump-jumper unless you call my mule, Charley a Stump-jumper...☺

Missy in Pepper creek. I got to get a pic of the split I saw today in that creek.
The water was flowing so pretty and clear today. The split has two little streams coming into one. Nice!

Love these trees that are strangly shaped.
This one just a hollow shell. Fairy trees down there in my woods.

peaceful site to watch.

These fern grow through-out the woods ,
they are laying flat now but when the sap
starts raising they will too.

These are wonderful pictures. It would be nice to see the same places in a few months.
I'll add a creek walk in my neighborhood.

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Some of the girls thought I need to do this.
I hope everyone enjoys it as much as me and my critters.
This was a large rock , too big for me to move!!
I wish.....

These were taken in September and October.
The creek is where the deer hang out until they come to my garden for a meal.
These pictures were taken as possible subjects for a series of paintings

Do you ever plant narcissus bulbs in there?

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

We have some Azaleas that will be blooming before too long. I need to plant some ,
Narcissus, don't I???

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

those are some pretty pic.
This is a fallen tree that has fern growing on it. When it gets hot and it dries
up when the first rain comes, it freshens it and it comes back green.

Very nice,it reminds me of being a little girl and going to the woods with my grandmother in spring we would pick violets ,purple and white ones and yellow dogtooths.

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

I think it's another Fairy log. When no
one is around they scurry out and play. I love it...

Beautiful RRM!!!! Thanks for taking us on a walk. We can't wait to see it burst out with spring. Keep posting and we'll keep walking with ya. :)

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

This is great what a good idea...oh it is so nice to see some green growing somewhere!!

Dellroy, OH(Zone 6b)

That was so much fun....I want to walk now too.......I have a rock like (the big one) that in my back yard.....Oh the plans I have for this place.....
Huh...I was thinking earlier today about the lasagna bed and where I was going to get leaves......never thought about the woods beside the house....your pictures inspired me......see RRM, it was worth the walk just for that!!! lol

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

It even grows on rocks. I am going back to get a pic of the
moss that is growing on a couple of Quartz -type rocks. It is so pretty.
Here they are!! I couldn't remember, see the rock showing thru??
The moss is so thick too.

Dellroy, OH(Zone 6b)

That would make some awesome ground cover for a fairy garden.

Or CP's :)

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

maybe I should put a tiny cp start down
there to see what would happen, you think???
It is thick down there. got Deer moss too.

Full sun for the CP. Put some of the moss on top of your bog if there's any to spare. It grows pretty fast. I have some in my sundew pot. Looks nice.

Dellroy, OH(Zone 6b)

Ok ladies, you lost me...blonde moment here...what is a CP?

Sorry for the delay Jar. CP's are carnivorous plants. This is our thread for the theme gardens were working on this spring. Some are doing Goth gardens and CP's will go in those. Check out the thread here; http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1066167/ Pick a theme and join right in.

Show us some more pics RRM. I'm still looking for bloodroot seeds for you. I found some wild iris if you want to tuck them in a nook somewhere. Maybe we should have a thread for a woodland garden. Ferns and Arisaemas and herbs and wildflowers. Wild grapes and blackberries. Do you have mayapples in the spring? Haven't seen those in years.

Ge1836 I loved your swamp pics. Reminds me of corkscrew swamp in FL. Talented.

Dellroy, OH(Zone 6b)

Seray, thanks for the answer and if you want mayapples I can get you mayapples. My woods are loaded with them.

Now back to the regularly scheduled tour...yes please more pictures when you have the time RRM. They are beautiful! And thanks for taking the time to do this....This is so neat!

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

I've not seen mayapples. That would be great. I have wild grapes. and blackberries and bindweed vine
I bought a Trillium last year.
Jar, I will send you a d-mail. o.k.?
I will go down again to day and get mor pic.
The furbabys will love the walk.

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

There's an old washing machine in there, An old race car-wrecked and tires all over the place, but still It gets growed over later in the season. Hmmmm, may have to do something with that washer.....

I call ths "Bind em vine" It has thorns on it and when you
dig it up. The Gnarliest root I ever saw. There was a patch down by the creek.

I don't know if you can tell but this is "the split" I was telling you all about.
Two little trickles coming into one stream. Right by the Fairy Stump.

Not a good pic.
