Porcupines

I rarely see anything other than birds when I’m
in the woods, which is surprising, considering
I’m in the woods every day, so I was very pleased
to find to 2 porcupines in the trees on Sunday
afternoon. I managed to get some pics of both
of them.

Fence Mud Run 2008

Ah, yes, boys and their toys. Every year in April, a group

of guys gets together for a little fun in the mud in

Fence, WI. Anyone who wants to can run their

truck through the mud, and if someone gets

stuck, someone else will happily pull them out.

Yeah, just a bunch of good ol’ boys rippin’ it up

in a muddy cornfield. This little event attracts

quite a large crowd, too.

My nephew and his mud truck and my husband.

My daughter and my nephew.

After a little trouble-shooting, he was able to get back in the mud.

The First Bloodroots

I took a walk in the woods this morning and found

the first bloodroots.  They aren’t open yet, but hopefully

in the next day or 2 they will be.  It’s sunny here today,

but still cold and windy.  Currently 43 degrees.

Camera-Critters Sunday #3

Last week I introduced my dog Axl, so this week I’d like to introduce

my other 2 “furbabies”, Jack and Earl.   They are 2 1/2 years old.

Jack is the one on the bottom shelf and his sister Earl is on the top

shelf.  And yes, I knew Earl was a girl when I named her, I was just

trying to be funny.  They are both big “love-sponges” and are the

2 sweetest cats we’ve ever had, and they get along just great with Axl.

One Single Impression: Flowering

PROMISE

In the silence there is beauty.

Stand beneath the cold, gray sky,

And feel it penetrate your soul

And calm you like nothing else can.

Life is in limbo all around;

Not quite dead, yet not growing either.

Such weariness, waiting for the sun.

Cold winds blow,

Stirring the leaves around my feet.

Snow falls, but doesn’t linger.

Trilliums lay patiently,

Closed and huddled against the earth,

Waiting to bloom.

A single daffodil opens,

The promise of new life.

More Macro

It was very cold and windy here today with occasional

snow flurries, and according to the forecast, we’re

supposed to get more of the same for the next few days.

Here’s some macro flower shots from this past

Wednesday.
