Through the woods

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.

        That’s a shame.


  3. What a view! I’d be tempted to cut a slim passage you could shimmy through too πŸ™‚.


    1. I’m very afraid of snakes, and so is my neighbor. Before the bamboo and river cane were there, it was easy to keep the path cleared, but now it’s not so easy.


  4. It would have been better to have left a fire break kind of a path for the neighbour – you have captured that tantalizing light though


    1. I guess it would have been better, but we’re two old ladies who don’t want to have to keep a path cleared. We’re both terrified of snakes, and it’s very difficult to keep river cane and bamboo cleared away.


      1. I understand now!!
