Some sights I have seen in the last few days while outside walking…
The leaves are just starting to pop out on the trees in our area, due to the delayed end of winter.
Some weird umbrella-like plants. They were everywhere in the woods.
Fungus growing out of a tree trunk.
Trees chopped down to put a turnabout road in.
A lot of trees have naturally fallen too, over the winter.
Lots of rain, making things gray and soggy.
Tulips by a stone bench.
A beautiful flowering tree.
A brief rainbow over a church parking lot.
It’s still winter, but we have sunshine and the snow has been melting!
Looking out the window, I can see the snow on the swing melting.
The wavy snow in the yard has some sort of animal tracks going through it.
In fact, it looks like a couple critters have been through.
Time for a walk. The rock by the front door is covered with an icy glaze that is melting in the sunshine.
The duck pond is still empty and silent.
The reeds along the edge of the pond are dead and brown.
The pine trees stand tall and proud in the blaze of the brilliant sun.
A lone pine cone, waiting for winter to end.
As long as the sun shines, I know that winter will end and spring will come again.
