My niece and her husband are expecting their first baby in June. This may go to them, unless I have a different inspiration or specific request (for certain colors, etc.) between now and then.
I sure like the bright scrappy look and hope baby and family do too. If you ask me, there's hours of visual entertainment right there. And naps.
It was a nice weekend for walking outdoors, with temps in the mid 30s to 40s. We did that instead of assemble a treadmill (which we did this afternoon; all systems go).
We walked the trail on the wildlife refuge nearby. Not a whole lot of wildlife to be seen or heard, but midwinter has an appeal all its own.
Shadows and reflections on the ice.
The leaning of trees over the frozen marsh. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down...
The tangle of tree roots and limbs.
We did see some small creatures out for a stroll, little woolly bear caterpillars. They're pretty bad at predicting the weather. It's not spring yet, little buddy.
But it's right around the corner.
