Somewhere between Fall and Winter...

Rowan berries

Magic Rowan, also known as Witchbane, Witchwood or simply Witchtree !

Daydreaming in the Forest

Do mushrooms dream ?

The "three Bards"

While I like to explore new parts of the Forest,
I keep coming back to a few special places and this is one of them.
There is such a peaceful vibe.
Upon arrival you are greeted by this amazing bunch of trees
which I have called "The Three Bards"...


Just look at this Bard's beautiful beard !

A Fairy tree ?

Not far from the "Three Bards" is this amazing tree,
looking kindly mischievous
and ready to walk towards you at any time !
I have called it the Fairy Tree :-)


Enchanted encounter...

Enchanted encounter with a woodland creature
trying to escape notice
by pretending to be dead wood...

The king of all Mushrooms

A little worn out and withered, hiding in the darkest area of the Forest
but still the king of all Mushrooms !

Sans titre

Somewhere between Fall & Winter...

Wood Love

Somewhere between fall & 
winter          "Mist'erious" ?

Both necklaces are entirely handmade by me.

In the forest from Dawn to Dust

Waiting for the Sun

Waiting for the Sun...


Sunrise magic !

Into the Woods

We got lost but what better place to be lost than in the Forest ?

Fairy Steps...

Fairy Steps...

Yellow Staghorn

Yellow Staghorn, or Antler Jelly.
I love how they look like tiny flames under a Petrify spell !

Mushroom 1 - 0 Moss

Mushroom 1 - 0 Moss

Wolf's Milk

Lycogala Epidendrum, also known as Wolf's Milk
I wonder about the ancient folk beliefs that earn it this Fairy tale common name ...
Slime molds are quite a mysterious thing as they have the characteristics of both fungi and animals !

Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven ?

Sleipnir ?

According to some legend, these are the hoofprints of Odin's horse Sleipnir.
Ancient Germanic tribes used to live here so a lot of places in the Forest bear names from the Norse mythology. 
Before them wre the Celts though, so this could very well be an ancient Druid place of sun worship ?

In any case, it is a magical place...

Sunset in the forest

Before leaving, we met this amazing Mushroom family...
