My Woods and Brooks

I am indulging my love for my land today. On Sunday I was able to get higher into the woods than last week. The January thaw has done damage to our snowpack, but on the brighter side, I was able to have an early peak at spring. The brooks are running full, even flooding at some points. I saw deer, snowshoe hare and turkey trails.

I love to sit and listen to the music of the water as it flows.

The cats still won't go up with me. They waited down at the house, sunning in the open garage.

Do you see the green fern above?

This is one of the glacial erratics on my land. There is another group of them with caves underneath for small animals. I couldn't get up to those.

Finally, I left the woods and returned down to my house. This is the most beautiful and peaceful place on earth. The snow is finally back. A small snowfall today and a heavier snowfall at the end of the week. The temperatures are returning to normal, also. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window. Thank you for allowing me to indulge myself with these photos.
