We found a Ghost Flower


Recommended Posts

Angus and I followed the orange blazes on the Mid State Trail for a little way. It runs for more than three hundred miles from north to south in PA. Mostly on the ridges of the Appalachian Mountains.

The forest floor was covered as far as we could see with green ferns. So shady and cool. 

We came out on a new road the Game Commission is putting in to open up more of the ridge area for hunters and hikers. We chatted with some loggers having a lunch break - their monster machines quiet beside them.

Angus likes to lead the way but on the way back he got worried and came back to see where I was. He found me looking at the ghost flower. Called this as it has no color getting nutrients from the decayed leaves and roots of trees.

Looks like a wonderful trail.  Don't you love it when they get worried and come and check on you.  :)  Always warms my heart.


This morning I thought I was alone in the kitchen only when I turned around I saw Dempsy sitting quietly in the doorway with two little sweet curious eyes on me.  Dempsy's face melts my heart every time.
