Magnolia Seed Cones

I found these Magnolia fraseri seed cones on my evening walk. They are astonishingly pink! When they are ripe they are a dark brown with brilliant red seeds the size of beans. These must have been blown down in a thunderstorm, so I put them in my pocket and added them to my sketchbook.

An evening walk through the forest

I have so much appreciation for the beautiful place in which I live. This Forest Service road is in my neighborhood and runs parallel to the laughing, cascading Rock Creek.

The Sun sets in the forest

And here is the Sun setting in the cathedral of the forest.
