Winter Walk

It was spring-like here yesterday. I took a walk with some friends looking for signs of spring. I must say we were not disappointed. We found the leaves of Putty Root and Cranefly Orchid. Hepatica leafed out. So it tells me that it won't be long until spring. 
The bark of trees become so much more interesting when they are standing sentry in a near empty woods. We knew we weren't alone because at least three wood frogs were serenading us.
The temps have been dropping all day. I hope you all got out to enjoy the weathers if it was possible in your neighborhood. What all did you see and hear?

Happy New Year 2013

I love hearing the
whir of little wren wings
Nuts fly off the feeder
Eaten in safety
amongst the pyracantha
life is prolonged
Winter invites all
partaking natures bounty
garden creatures share
Even song sparrows
dance along the edges of
the window feeder
Sunshine peeks through a
curtain of crystallized fog
hopeful new year enters
Happy New Year!
