What do I need?

October 12, 2010

My friend Christine invited me to join Graciel’s blog challenge to go out and find/make signs that reflect what we need in our lives. Since I wanted to wander back into the woods to find my enchanted purple-leaf-hideaway anyway, I grabbed my camera, a Sharpie, and some paper, and set off into the sunshine.

It turned out to be a much more meaningful exercise than I expected. (And… oh my! What fun I had with my camera!)

Here’s the evidence:

    This is my first time to find and visit you. Please tell me what the purple leave are?! I’ve never seen them before. It’s possible we have them here in Texas and they just don’t turn that color because it’s too warm. Lovely video. I do believe I need all the things you need. Thank you.

      Sharon – I wish I knew what the purple leaves were, but I don’t. This is the first time I’ve spotted them. Maybe I just wasn’t looking closely enough before or maybe I didn’t wander into the right part of the woods. They’re on vines creeping up trees, but they were only in a small area of the bush. I think they probably just blend in during the rest of the year and I was just lucky enough to come across them at their magical time.

      Does anyone else know?
