Autos of beauty
So for today:
I felt good this morning, Temps in the 50’s just a little muddy in the picnic area, but I started a good fire. I have been playing at splitting firewood. Dar, who knows a LOT about splitting asked what kind I was splitting.
So I have split dogwood, oak and poplar. It all splits easy if there are no KNOTs or limb arms. It is a good exercise and not too demanding. If the splitter gets stuck I use the sledge to urge the split. Today it was easy, mostly poplar from last year’s dead fall.
I love being outside playing, I think it is good for me. I just wanted to show you what I discovered on my 5th split. I spotted a ‘green’ heart.
The closer I looked I was amazed at the detail I was seeing.
Some areas looked like modern art expressions.
When painting or drawing in school, I loved outlining in black for emphasis. Here Nature has outlined some colors in black.
Do yo9u see a lizard likeness lying just below the green?
Anyway I just wanted you to see it. In pictures of course there is not the impact at holding and looking at nature’s art.
(This is a cross section to show all the different colors, try to picture all these pieces are almost flat.)
Since a child, the woods and nature have called me. I love it’s song and stories.
