Small Havens


An intricate and almost magical world unto itself , this little spot by Cedar Pond. Mosses , Lilies of the Valley , ferns ... so many whorls and cavities in the tree roots creating what seem like tiny homes for very little creatures . And yes ! They are indeed small havens of rest , comfort, and safety for the frogs, insects, salamanders, mice, and garter snakes. There are probably many more creeping and crawling creatures I am glad not to encounter as I walk through our woods near the pond, but not near as glad as the creatures that see me pass by.

Looks like a place the fairies would like. (Yes, I believe in fairies and little people.)

That would be paradise for the kitties. Lovely photo. Deb

What a pretty little nook of plant material. Like June, I feel the spot is perfect for fairies.

That's a neat picture, Kathy. There are a lot of little nooks and crannies where little creatures could hide there. :)
