The Longleaf Pine

The other day I showed you what the wood’s floor looked like with all of the fallen pine needles; my fellow blogger friend, Brenda, asked if these were from the Longleaf Pine tree, so I thought I’d show you an example of what this ecosystem looks like. I took this photograph the same day as the other photo, it was just right around the corner. What’s great about our area here is there are so many diverse ecosystems, one minute you’re in one, the next, a totally different system.

The Pine Forest

There’s a section of pine forest at the Lake Jackson Indian Mounds, which is just gorgeous in the fall/winter. The pine needles drop and cover the ground, giving a soft, warm glow.

The Path

There’s always something magical about walking a path in the woods, you never know what’s up ahead. Beauty certainly!

Refuge

2014_03_01_9999_15

Whenever I get a chance, I take my 11-year old son, Ian, to the Lake Jackson Indian Mounds here in Tallahassee, Florida. This is my own personal refuge from the “real” world. When I was little, our mom used to take us there for picnics. I’ve been taking Ian ever since he could walk. There’s nothing more soothing than walking in the woods, hearing nothing but birds chirping, squirrels scampering up the trees, leaves falling, and the gentle rhythm of the creek water running. Ahhhhhhhh. Serenity!
