Things I Saw

Wanting to be alone yesterday afternoon I took a long hike down the mountain. I needed time alone to think and I also wanted to take a few pictures for a post today.

small stream

I hiked toward a small pond that is feed by a small stream. As I approached the pond I could hear and see a dozen or more water frogs jumping into the water. This pond is only 10 feet deep with crystal clear water, I could see the bottom covered in leaves. This pond is feed by a small stream that runs above ground but in a few areas runs underground. I forgot to take any pictures until I started hiking back along the stream.

Here are a few pictures of the things I saw!

native wild flower

I am not sure of the name of this native wild flower but as I looked around they were everywhere. Do you know the name of this plant?

The first visitor today, which was Tex, see her post below, identified this flower as Bloodroot. I was also given a link by Elizabeth, http://creeksideresort.net/blog/?p=159

Love is not about how much you say I Love You
But how much you prove that it’s true!

Enjoy Your Sunday!
