Living The Seasons

Alas, So Little Remains of Human Inhabitants

Scroll down to content
Henry David Thoreau once said,
Alas! how little does the memory of these human inhabitants enhance the beauty of the landscape!  
When my favorite boy toy and I go hiking, we sometimes find clumps of daffodils in middle of the woods.  Usually it’s from a house that used to be there and if we look carefully, we can often see a foundation of sorts or some other evidence that someone once lived there.  It’s sad that so little remains of early settlers and their homes, but the daffodils seem to always endure.

    1. Both the daffodils and day lilies spread like crazy – what a great reminder of homes and lives that used to be there.
