Much Love to All of you!

Appreciate the Spirit, Ecology & Bounty of the Forest... and all of Nature!
  Forest at Waterloo WMA in SE Ohio


Chicken of the Woods... Yum!

Laetiporus sulphureus ~ Chicken of the Woods. Here growing in Athens County, Ohio.  Appalachian forms can be tasty and choice when young like this.  Incredible as the main event in Thai-style red or yellow curry.  West Coast forms may cause gastrointestinal upset, particularly if growing from eucalyptus wood.

April 2012... Thank You So Much!

No Keystone XL Pipeline

Galeris spectabilis - The Showy Orchis.  This one is growing near Waterloo, Ohio.

Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens ~ Large Yellow Lady's Slipper Orchid. Here native in Burlington, VT.

Beautiful Ohio

Long, long time ago
Someone I know
Had a little red canoe,
In it room for only two.
Love found its start
Then in my heart,
And like a flower grew.


Drifting with the current down a moonlit stream,
While above the Heavens in their glory gleam,
And the stars on high
Twinkle in the sky,
Seeming in a paradise of love divine,
Dreaming of a pair of eyes that looked in mine.
Beautiful Ohio, in dreams again I see
Visions of what used to be.
                       ~Ballard MacDonald, 1918

     This is Zoe expressing her joy to be at the top of a little mountain in Vermont in my backyard called Little Baldy by my neighbors in the hamlet along Brush Brook further down the mountain from Camels Hump.  Zoe is a happy black rescue pup, still is up in Vermont .     

                       Ramps Rock... Tasty and Delicious

                Ramps, Allium tricoccum, are an incredible gift of the forest to the forager... oh, how I love Ramps season...

    Northern Hempishere to Southern Hempishere both with an important message for our New Year. Listen to your tribal voice inside and get those fires burning be you Navajo or whatever Nation. Bring all the fire (life) lights into action for hope and love. Mitakuye Oyasin.
