Abandoned Ramblings

Last Spring, Sissy and I, on one of our walks through The Abandoned, came across this interesting object crushed into the soft carpet of fir needles covering the roadway.  At first I thought it was a vase, but it was a light bulb!

The vast parking lot is covered with soft blades of green.  It almost looks like a meadow, but up close you can see the gravel beneath.

Clytie found these near the base of an old fir tree near the ruins of The Abandoned.  I hadn't seen a star flower in years.  This delicate starry flower was one of our favorites when we were young--and still is today!

WARNING:  If you intend to visit The Abandoned, be sure to get permission from the owners first. If you do not have permission, you may be arrested and prosecuted for trespassing.

I love your starflower picture! Mine never turn out.

I can't wait for your next visit, and our next secret walk at The Abandoned. Who knows what we will find next!
