If you’ve ever heard about the beauty of the fairy-tale forests in Europe, I can tell you that the stories are true.
One of my best friends lives in Finland, and I was lucky enough to travel there last year for a visit. We explored the city of Helsinki and its suburbs, but we also ventured to her sister’s summer cottage in the woods.
There, I felt like I had been transported to the world of Snow White or Sleeping Beauty. The forest was almost magical, saturated with gorgeous colors and thriving with vegetation and toadstools.
I was reminded of my trip last week when I was walking my dogs near my house and came across this tiny stump with mushrooms growing from it.
It seemed a tiny piece of the forest had found me in Temple Terrace.
