Finished and ordered


I've been working on this book for a long time...in fact I got this idea in my head last fall.

Wouldn't it be fun to go out as often as possible for a hike, walk, or ride in the woods that surround me and take pictures of the wildflowers and plants as they emerged?

Okay, maybe not fun for you.
But it sure was a learning experience for me.

I've spent countless hours working on organizing my 'field notes', trying to organize my 'Wildthings' File which holds nearly 300 photos [not all of them used of course].

Was I able to identify all the wildflowers? Heck no.
Did I feel like it was work? Heck NO!

This surely was a labor of love, a test of persistence, and a true test of my organizational skills.
[hmmmmm~I learned to be more organized with my photo files...dates matter!]

You can take a peek at it at the following link:
The Enchanted Forest~~

or simply click on the 'badge' in the upper right hand column.

There are 142 pages, approximately 200 photos, and several 'blurbs' from me regarding the adventure of it all.

I know that I'll be quite tickled to have it and be able to page through it for years to come.

Oh yeah...and now to work on the newest adventure with Morris and his toys...
'The Big Creek'....
