The February Woods

It was so warm Sunday afternoon that I took Chad and Kristina for a walk in the wood.

We had lessons in creek jumping. Kristina kept getting stuck.IMG_2911

I was fascinated by the snowy stream.IMG_2916IMG_2927IMG_2921

Chad identified the tracks of a Meadow Vole– only he called it a “Meadow Vobe“, until we figured out what he meant and corrected him. How this boy knows these things is beyond me.

I found some vines–“telephone wires” we always have called them– and some seed pods.

It was a nice walk. It always amazes me how even the relatively bleak winter world is still so beautiful. The wood’s skeleton is so sophisticated.
