Now that we are in the full glory of summer with lots of sun and heat, the dryads, or wood nymphs, are quite abundant. If you take a walk in a secluded wooded area, and the more secluded the better, your chances of happening upon one of these exotic creatures is better now than at any other time during the year. There are many theories as to why these nymphs are so abundant in the months of July and August, but scientists have not come to any definite conclusions. It may simply be that nymphs enjoy summer more so than any other season, and thus venture out of their haunts at this time of year with great frequency.
Whatever the case, the nymph is one of those mysterious creatures that has always fascinated me, and so I will always enjoy writing about their beauty.
