In The Woods #BlogFlash2012

Hi. It’s Day 24 already and I can’t believe we’ve only got 6 more posts after today and then #BlogFlash2012 is finished. Anyway today’s prompt is In The Woods. As I wrote a dark-ish one for the Forest prompt, I decided to go the opposite way for this one.


In The Woods

I love wandering through woods. There’s a real sense of getting back in touch with nature and I’m lucky we have some great ones only a short-ish car journey from where I live.

As a writer, I find getting away from the hustle and bustle of town living very therapeutic. Wandering amongst the trees, ferns and brackens, and seeing some wildlife not only calms and relaxes me, I find a great deal of inspiration there.

The way the sun peeps through the arboreal canopy, the colours of foliage and wild flowers, enriches me in ways nowhere else can.



Colour #BlogFlash2012

Today’s prompt is colour. I thoght this was an interesting one to do and gave it a great deal of thought. So here is my Day 3 offering – hope you like it!



Do you ever stop to think how drab our lives would be without colour?

Take a walk with me . . . look at the blue sky, the white fluffy clouds, the golden sun so bright it hurts your eyes.

See the green grass.  Observe tree trunks; different shades of brown and grey, admire the leaves and how the hues change from tree to tree.

Examine flowers, so many colours and shades their magnificence takes your breath away.

Notice birds’ bright plumage, beautifully adorned butterflies; the list is endless . . .

Now picture a world without colour. Can you?
