Secret Hide-Out

My little one and I decided to follow mushrooms the other day and go wherever they would lead us. Now she thinks they worked some sort of magic because we ended finding “the best secret hide-out ever“:

  1. I remember, I had one like this when I was small.
    —– and I imagined as if I were a Ninja 😀

    • My little one imagines she’s a ninja sometimes, too. And a fairy, and a knight, and a dragon… 🙂 I can see we’ll be visiting her hide-out often.

    • Isn’t it great?! So much to do in a place like this. Plus, my daughter just loves hanging from the trees, too. 🙂

  3. This is a pretty cool hide-out. I think there’s room here for a tea party or two, or at least a magic show.

    • You’re thinking exactly what she’s thinking! She’s already had one tea party with her dolls there, and we’re planning a picnic there this weekend! 🙂

  5. I’ve heard of magic mushrooms but I thought one had to eat them rather than follow them.

    That’s a beautiful spot/shot.

    • 🙂 Try it out sometime. You might be surprised where they lead you. We’ve been surprised more than once.

  7. Mushrooms often lead me through the forest. I’lll see one to photograph and then see another even more interesting one near it, and on through sometimes 4 or 5 pictures. My hiding spot was under a weeping willow that had branches like a curtain.

    • Isn’t it fun just to let the mushrooms take the lead. 🙂 I love to photograph them. It is their ephemeral nature that draws me to them in addition to their fascinating appearance and details. When I was little I used to LOVE to play under weeping willows! There is something magical about their form. Unfortunately, there are not really very many around here, or not any on property we could play on.

  9. Oh how lovely! A special spot to visit together….girl talk, tea parties, sharing secrets….everybody should have such a nice hideaway…… 😀

    • Yes, we all need that don’t we. I bet Sammy would have a fine time playing in there, too! 🙂 Lots of fun things to pounce on!

  10. Magical indeed.

  11. How brilliant! She’ll probably remember this place for the rest of her life.

    • I imagine she will. It’s already becoming a very special place to her, and each time she goes, I think she grows more attached to it.

  12. I had a secret place like this when I was a boy, not all that long ago, and our daughters found their own as well, when they were small. I still remember how dear they were (and still are to our hearts). I have a couple of photos of theirs, but it never occurred me to try to make one of mine back then. She certainly will treasure yours for many years!

    • Such wonderful memories to treasure, Gary. I’m so grateful that my little one loves the outdoors so much, and it’s places like this that can play a big part in encouraging young children to spend more time outside.
