Parksville Wetlands walk

It was a wonderful summer day to have a Parksville Wetlands walk.  A great place to enjoy many different species of plants, animals and fungi.

Great trails for dogs

A short distance to the trail head we passed through rolling meadows with hard hack blooming.  There is a gravel trail to walk on that changes into a soft forest path as you enter the main trail.  Also there is a sign so you know you are in the right place!

Over the railroad track and into the forest we go.  No trains are running on this track today but maybe one day the train will go by as it use to.

The Oceanspray was blooming and the white flowers were draped everywhere on the paths.  I felt like I was in a magic forest.  It was very enchanting.

Beautiful red columbine flowers were also in bloom.  They are vibrant red in color so they really stand out.

In conclusion, I am very thankful for all these day trails in the Parksville area.  Easily accessible and a great place to find peace and serenity.  Chill out time in nature is important to body, mind and soul.

I am excited to share with you this Trillium Mandala art!  Spring has arrived.  This year at one of the local parks there were a lot of trillium flowers.  They are a lovely white color that really stands out in the underbrush of the forest.

Trillium flowers make pretty mandalas like the one below.  Natures’ fractals are eye-catching with the many shades of green.  Topped with a splash of white Trillium and you have lots of good vibes!

Thanks for visiting and please share with your friends.

I am grateful for your support.  🙂

Sengen-Sama

Fractal art representing Sengen-Sama – the Japanese Shinto Goddess of Mt. Fujiyama.  Climb the sacred mountain and attain inner guidance and perspective on your life.  As the flower buds mature try to find growth and maturity in your own life.  Spiritually we grow as we navigate the mountain paths. Twisting and turning,  we slowly gain elevation to the temple Goddess.  In essence, together we greet the rising sun on this sacred mountain knowing that each day we are grateful to begin again.  Many lessons are learned on this sacred mountain journey.  These lessons continue through our lives so that we may teach others.

In summary,  please support the arts in your community to inspire others to goddess greatness!
