This forest, hill behind our home is an easy place to escape to nature. We can see it from our house and watch the season change. At the moment I am waiting for the green to push through and brighten this place. I do like that there is so much evergreens here. Moss, pine trees, spruce. it is forest therapy just steps away. Happy Easter everyone, stay safe and take care.
