I would like to share with you what I saw in Brightwood Park this morning and hope you will share what you discover in this amazing place, too.
After the rainfall last night, light fog developed. When the sun came out, rays could be seen in multiple places, like beams were like spot lights on a stage and the trees were like dancers demonstrating their skills.
The water in the ponds was calm and quiet, presenting a unique sense of tranquility. Bugs finished their meals on a tree, and left a pattern on the leaves, like my grandma's art pieces of paper cutting .
A gentle breeze swung by and caused an "artificial rain." Along the two-bridge trail, a coyote left fresh footprints as a signature. I tried looking for the animal but was unable to spot it this time.
About the last photo in this set, I must have touched the button of my iPhone camera accidentally. However, when I saw the colorful pattern of who knows what, the more I looked, the more I liked it. If you can help to make any sense out of the pattern, I will be very interested to hear your ideas.
For weeks I have been monitoring the fruit on a spicebush tree along the trail between the junction of the two ponds and the dam and bridge. A few days ago I finally saw some turning red. Watching waterdrops hanging on the ones of red, green, and intermediate colors, I was thinking if I were a little girl, I might be inspired to make a necklace with them.
I am a frequent visitor of Brightwood Park and enjoy sharing my discoveries.
Brightwood Park is on the North end of Prospect Street. Go past Franklin School and look for the entrance on the left.
