As Spring approaches, the afternoon sunlight through the trees is changing. Here are three views through the woods, taken from my front porch.
If you look closely at the first photo you can see the roof and chimney of my neighbor’s house. She is an amazing artist, and the house was once a railroad station. Some years ago there was a path through the woods between her house and mine. However, before he passed away her husband planted river cane and two kinds of bamboo that have created an impenetrable bamboo forest and “canebrake,” and the path is gone. Now if I want to visit I have to get in the car, drive down the lane turn onto the intersecting road, then onto the highway, and then make another turn onto the road on which she lives. It’s crazy.
