Reed-Turner Ravine

Reed-Turner Ravine
One of the places I love to go is the Reed-Turner Nature Preserve in Long Grove.  This lovely preserve boasts a hilly trail that leads you from the bottom, where you can watch the damselflies dance over the water of a stream, up to the top where you can look out over the trees and get an elevated view of that stream.  Along the way are some nice specimens of woodland plants that I don't see just everywhere, like baneberry, white trilliums, and even a mermaid's tail or two.
To celebrate a recent visit there with my daughter I created this serene little painting.  We're at the top, here, looking down on the stream as it wends its way through the trees.
