A Childhood View Of Ground Pine

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Ground Pine 10521a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The damp forest never really sleeps. The trees do but the rest of forest is bustling with life. The ground pine is a constant companion for the Appalachian. As a child I would lay down on forest floor and pretend that I was an explorer like Indiana Jones trekking my way through the tiny jungle. Broken sticks only a couple of inches long became action figures and piles of rocks for an ancient temple. Sometimes there were dinosaurs in the form of a salamander that wandered lazily onto the scene. The red efts could be dragons that you had to follow all the way to a hidden treasure. I also remember a game that involved running through a patch of ground pine that was in spore such as these and trying to make it all the way through without a cloud of spores rising up from the strange looking cones. The days of childhood play may be long gone but I still have the urge to simply crawl into a patch of ground pine and let my imagination go wild when I see it.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
