Wandering in our woods

A nice little spot where the brook babbles

The next generation

Some trees that came down
behind our house
in the last rain storm









Anybody home?

Fiddleheads

Spring beauties

Deer tracks

These little white flowers were everywhere

Its all Autumn here now and starting to get colder. I've been preserving and the garden is still doing its thing but not for very long now.

I like your creek. That is one thing I miss in this house - the local river is at the bottom of the street rather than running through my garden as it was before in the previous house. However, spring tides don't lap the front doorstep any more either so there are some compensations - salt water isn't good for most plants!

Wait! Where's your snow? I still have snow.... it's not fair you don't have snow! I don't care that you live a million miles south of me, if I have to look at snow, EVERYONE has to look at snow!

*WHINE*

knutty - Thankfully, we don't have saltwater to worry about. We're about a 3 hour drive from the coast here.

barefoot - No snow here for a while, though we did get frost a couple times last week. We get just the right amount of snow for me. It snows enough to stick several times per winter, but it's typically gone within a few days of falling.

daisyfae - The fiddleheads are just the "larval" form of various types of ferns. They unroll and then unfurl their leaves as they grow out. They're also typically edible - steamed or in salads.
