This week I was very privileged to be taken to visit a wood in a different area. It was a wonderful wood with many species and both old and new trees As soon as you entered the wood the stresses and strains of the days before, were swept away. Walking in woodland helps us to deal with our everyday lives when we are stressed and/or depressed. The joy of the trees and their colourful leaves in the sunlight lifts our spirits. There are so many different colours which change with the sunlight and the breeze.
But this wood was a very fruitful wood as well. There were different kinds of apples, acorns, nuts, and berries as well as wild flowers to see. I feel that we do not appreciate the gifts of nature as much as we should. Do you enjoy walking in the woodland? How does it make you feel? Do you use the gifts that the trees give to us? If so what do you do with them?
When I left the wood I felt invigorated and refreshed ready to face whatever the universe was going to throw at me next. Tell me about your woodland experiences please.
