A quiet settles over the forest
Only the sound of wind in the trees
shaking and rattling
the gentle creak of trees resting together
Around the bend squirrels rustle through the leaves
looking for the last fallen acorns
A squeak brings the eyes up
where stealthily a nuthatch climbs
to hide food in the heavy bark
of the old oak tree
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
