little mug / big trees
This evening I enjoyed a cup of Earl Grey tea in this little mug that makes me feel happy every time I use it - it was the very first mug I made on a wheel and glazed. / Taylor didn't send a photo again ( oh so busy i guess). But I always have plenty to choose from. Taylor took this photo exactly one year ago when my brother and his family visited from Maryland. We took a family hike at a place called Big Trees Forest Preserve, just few miles from home. It feels like a secret haven there. It's a 30-acre tree, plant and wildlife sanctuary right in the midst of a highly developed area. There are several, nicely managed, mulch trails, big rock boulders, 2 creeks, tree bridges, a variety of flowering plants and trees including white oak trees that are 100 to 200 yrs old. It's a wonderful escape so close to home.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
