A bit of woodsy prestidigitation
Walking through the woods after several days of heavy wind and rain always brings surprises. Trees uprooted. Limbs dangling precariously. Vines twisted like the chains of a playground swing.
This morning I was taken aback as I saw a dead limb seemingly suspended in mid air. It took a moment to figure out that it was hanging by an almost invisible honeysuckle vine attached high up in another tree.
Such is the magic of the woods.
