When I began to explore forests as a child in Quebec I was taught a simple navigational guide "moss always grows on the north side of a tree."  I now live in British Columbia and often walk in circles.

Spring Fever

It's spring fever.
That is what the name of it is.
And when you've got it, you want - oh,
you don't quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache,
you want it so!
Mark Twain

And I've got it.

Stone Wall with Moss

Down the lane
is where I want to be
In a field
is where I want to be
By the sea
is where I want to be
Lucky me
I am where I want to be

The Vacant Lot

I went walking in the vacant lot today. Not much growing yet but I did find some lovely prickly things (that's a botanical term ).
