It's here! Finally! Spring! I'm not too excited am I? These are the only things blooming right now. I see little green shoots coming from day lilies, hostas and daffadils all over the Pines and I know in a few weeks we'll be enjoying them. I also know snow can come and give us a spring shock, but all in all it's been a great week with warmer temps, sunny days and even though I was bit by a spider outside, it's still means that winter is heading out of town!
Ok, now for the weird and curious..Jack found these bones in the back near the woods...hmmmm...I wonder what was chomping on them..who they belonged to...what they belonged to. Not that I'm creeped out by the fact that something was knawing on big bones in my very yard while I slept. I know my anatomy and it looks like a femur, only it's very short. If you see a gnome with only one leg, let me know OK?
After Thanksgiving we threw our cornstalks, that had been up since October, into a burn pile that will happen here soon. It was fun to see that the critters enjoyed every corn kernal on all those stalks! Hope it made this long, snowy and cold winter just a bit easier for them.
As I was clomping through the Creepy Woods I had to stop and click a pic of this tree that stood out among the bare trees and dead wood. It's white leaves are a pleasant surprise that just stood out and looked so peaceful in this setting.
The stark beauty of winter fading will soon lead to green and lush, but for now I'll be satisfied with this final reminder that nature can always suprise us with it's quiet beauty.
