My first walk of the New Year was taken not on a Wednesday but on the holiday weekend. My family and I made a long-over due trip to visit family in Mississippi. My husband hails from this lovely state and much of his family still live there. Addie and I managed to sneak into the woods for a few minutes.
This is what we saw.
The pond was full of wood ducks but they didn’t stay around for a photo op.
Addie was very proud of this bottle she found with a small eco-system contained in its walls.
I thought this leaf was pretty impressive too.
We wandered around and found this grub…….
And mushroom cap…….
Addie gave up on me at this point.
Yet,I found this mushroom and acorn collection buried in the forest floor.
I thought it was lovely.
I decided this was the brain of the forest.
Then I went back to the house.
Firewood was being gathered, stories told and the dog……
The dog was happy.
I hope you all have a great week!
Thanks, as always, for reading!
