Just a Slice; a walk around Gregan’s

One of my favorite things these days is taking very slow walks through the woods and trying to notice everything. This evolved over time as I’ve been working on developing my mushroom hunter’s eye. Now I spy tiny lost feathers poking up from leaves, a mushroom about to burst through, and the elusive Lobaria lichens that grow on tree trucks. I am fascinated by all of it.

Buttercup. I only see these in the spring & summer in Maine.

  1. Such gifts we are given by the natural world, if only we stop to notice and treasure them. Thank you for sharing.
