That's a long title, sorry. But I have actually so many photos to share with you, I want to do it now, this week, because I'll leave at the end of next week. (and when I'll be back from my time away, I'll have undoubtedly tons of photos to share too ! ah !) So, beware ... this is a photo loaded post ! (as if my other posts were not .... ahem !)
These photos were taken around Mont Aigoual, on Sunday 24th morning. Tomorrow I'll share photos taken in the afternoon, around the weather station (the last remaining one which is still inhabited by meteorologists)
As usual, I haven't had the time to look for plants & flowers ID, I'm sorry.
piles & piles of dry leaves & oakmoss (evernia prunastri)
leaves of grass (like Walt Whitman would say)
forget-me-nots & buttercups
(wouldn't it make a lovely book title or blog name, eh ?)
beautiful leaf shape
so happy to be in the forest
yes, the one with medicinal properties ...
but beware it is not edible, and can be poisenous if
large amounts of the plants are eaten !
isn't it a beautiful flower ? (it was not small at all)
I was waiting for fairies to welcome me in ....
that must be a Forest Fairies Cottage, right ??
I was mesmerized by the piles of dry leaves
that had been transported in the river (in the winter)
I loved the movement, the quantity, the juxtaposition,
the graphic aspect of it ... I always find these beautiful !
this is the same flower as yesterday, that I haven't identified yet
hosting a spider
and I came closer ...
such strong greens in the forest
fresh leaves canopies to protect us from the sun
More tomorrow !!!
