Out and About

.
The warmer weather of earlier in the week blew out with the March winds.  It's been snow, off and on, since then.  We haven't really done much cold weather hiking this year, so we've made up for it this week.  We took a walk on the River Walk on Monday.  It's a little path just 3/4 mile from our house, a tiny strip of nature along the river.

River Walk 1

Given its proximity to houses and association with the local garden club,
the River Walk has its share of cultivated plants.
These crocuses are so hopeful, even in the snow.

River Walk 2

The children collected lots of bark for fairy houses.
Roan built a fairy ladder, slide and plank.
It now occurs to me that I haven't shared a picture of The Plank.
I'll take care of that soon.

River Walk 3

Anyway, here's a snowy little hole, probably belonging to a groundhog.

Lake 1

We went out to the lake yesterday, to visit the island and look for ice.

Lake 2

Roan happily brought us piece after piece of ice.
He even found one that was stuck on a large stick, looking rather like an axe.

Lake 3

The children enjoyed making silly faces through the wavy ice.
Today, we've got someone coming to measure our (snowy) roof.
I'm not sure if we'll get out or not, but I hope so.

Love seeing the snow and ice pictures! We, um, don't have much of that here!

Love these photos! Roan is getting so big. He really looks like a big boy now. It's been cold and flurrying here, too. Seeing crocuses in my neighbor's yard gives me hope.

He is getting ready for kindergarten, for sure. :-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
