It is a lovely day for a walk in the woods, along the sparkling creek. Soon it will be Spring, with loveliness everywhere (and ticks as well). I do enjoy the contours of the earth visible in the winter before the green wall of Spring descends.

I spotted a flock of Robins on the way back. I must be in a migratory fly-way of some sort, as I have seen several times over the last 4 years huge flocks of Robins along the creek, in both Spring and Fall.

At any rate, they are a welcome sight - Spring must be near!  Hopefully they won’t fly back South when it drops into the teens again tonite!

That creek needs a family of beavers.  I'll look on Amazon and see how much they are selling them for these days.

Beautiful property.

We did have a beaver dam for a while this Spring, Marco, but I think they gave up after being washed out a few times by a few of the many deluges this year!  We had some real gulley-washers. That, or a coyote got them.
 
incandescent light gives off an efficient form of heat. You must be THIS smart to ride this ride. Tiny ad:
