In the woods








When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
when the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
Lord Byron
Have a wonderful weekend!

Meda, have a wonderful weekend too. I loved this refreshing walk in the woods with you and the excellent pictures of the berries and snake.

All wonderful pictures, Medam: from the road among the pines to the river with those nice green leaves, the snake (interesting!), the beautiful berries. I've so much enjoyed the whole sequence! :-)

The memories that swell with your beautiful pictures. Rushing rivers and summer ripe wild stawberries. I lost mine that I has grown from seed from Latvia more than thirty years ago. We are just coming out of a 6 year drought.
I love visiting your blog, it reminds me so of my distant homeland.
Thank you for sharing the beauty of your world.

The sparkling, running water is wonderful. Those berries look as though they would be delectably flavorful.

Hi my dear blogging friends!
Thank you all for your visiting and nice comments. I noticed that many of you thought that it was a snake on the photo that I had posted. I would like to let you know that it is only looks like a snake but in fact it is a kind of a lizard (Anguis fragilis) or slow worm or blindworm which is often mistaken for snakes. In my language we call it as “sljepić” which matches the English name “blindworm”. Some blindworms are enough to have a blade of grass over his head to feel secure and not to flee from the man because they think that they cannot be seen, although the rest of the body is completely visible. The blindworm from my photo behaved just like that. For that reason I thought it was dead when I perceived him on the ground. His body is long 50 cm. If his enemy bite off his tale it will re-grow again as in lizards, but his tail grows only once.

Have a wonderful weekend to you all!

A lovely wooded place to ramble! And what a lizard! Yes, lizards do grow back their tails. We have house lizards, not like a serpent tho.
