Winter's Waning, I Can Feel It!

I went for a woodland walk with my daughter and her friend yesterday. It was 38 degrees F and sunny, which felt glorious after months of being buried in snow and cold weather.

We were surprised, however, by how much snow is still on the ground. Walking was tough- we'd go a few steps on top of the snow, then suddenly sink in.  We got quite a workout.

But the sun was warm and lovely, so we stopped at a fallen tree to appreciate the sun and stillness, and beauty. 

I lounged on a fallen tree watching beech leaves sway against a blue sky

while the girls recorded their poetry ideas.

Then we headed back feeling relaxed and refreshed.

What fun nature experiences have you had lately?
