7 Day Nature Challenge/ Day 4

Redwoods, they are majestic silent and massive. This particular beauty lives 8 feet from the back corner of my house. Its trunk is so massive there are two 250 ft. trees growing from it. Quite a place to spend time. Allowing worries to wander up into the treetops while a silent blanket of peace replaces them. I am thankful she watches over my home, my boys, my worries. So thankful.

I said yes to the challenge from Pike at ArtKorppi II, post nature images for 7 days. Her images remind me of walking silently through nature, she peeks quietly through her neck of the woods giving me a sense of what it must be like to be a small animal living where she lives. I adore the perspective she offers through her lens. Please do take a look at her blog if you love to get lost in nature. And, if you are interested in participating in this challenge as well please let me know in the comments. I will nominate 7 bloggers on day 7.


    1. You describe it as it feels, a surrounding warm energy. I feel blessed, Maria. I have dreamed of a house in the woods my whole life and this past year it turned into a reality. We all love on this tree, there are other clusters on our property as well, and it really does feel like home.

  1. I love the story of your family to live in the middle of the trees. We have lived in the countryside for twenty years, but will soon begin to plan moving out to a smaller apartment. I don’t know how to succeed in it mentally. I am happy for this gone time and I hope you and your family all the best!

    1. Thank you, Pike. It was a long time coming for us but we are feeling settled and fortunate! I am sorry to hear you are moving soon to a place that may not inspire you. Hopefully, you can find a place with a view that offers some peace and close by natural surroundings. I see that your happiness is one with the beauty of what you see. It is important to recognize that and stay as true to yourself in your new space as you can. Nature is so nurturing.

      1. Thank your for your true words, Carrie. I’ll enjoy this environment as long as possible and try to find a good new place that suits both of us. But it may be that the house takes a long time to sell …
