I love the woods. Especially in mid-springtime, when the smell of fresh ferns is everywhere. The trees are not-quite deep green, but are beyond the light, yellow-green stage. The birds sing almost constantly. The fresh-growth ferns perfume the air. When I hear the term "my happy place," my first instinct is always to think, "oceanside." But I've also come to view the quiet, peaceful, earthy, green woods as my happy place, too. A wonderful retreat from the world.
