We walked my favourite woods
where rustic stairways
help us across the biggest of rocks.
We came to see if the lady slippers were in bloom...
and there they were
pretty in pink.
Clouds of big fat mosquitoes swarmed around us
and landed on skin as soon as we stopped.
Made for a brisk walk!
We still took time to enjoy the forest canopy above scraggy trees
and I spied a lovely rotting moss covered stump.
But boy was I glad to get out of there!
