Exploring Houdek Dunes with Suzie.
Trees still holding tightly to their buds.
Moss emerging from piles of slowly melting snow.
The earth starting to smell like sweet spring.
How many more snow photos would you like to see in April . . . ?
In all seasons,
bring us back here,
to the place where
ten years between them
through the seasons
today I stand
watching them hold hands,
as they travel over a frozen landscape
that will soon
We had a glorious day for a hike up to Clay Cliffs. It was a little field trip to spring before winter returned!
I told the girls that Jeffrey and I haven’t been out skiing together for three years. Three years! Wallace was too little last year to be left for long and the year before that he was an infant. It feels amazing to go out with my Jeffrey and cruise together through our winter wonderland.
Out in the rainy mist, looking for lichen, fungi, and moss. Kissing the boy.
Thanks for taking our family photo, James!
Oh, this boy. Talking with such confidence. So articulate. So sure. Making his way in the world. Such vitality. Life’s longing for itself.
Not much school work this week. Sometimes I take photos of the briefest moments to help me feel better.
This looks like a happy scene, but it isn’t really. The girls decided this morning that the roos needed to go. They were becoming too aggressive with the hens. They rounded up the two young men and took them on a farewell walk through meadows and over hills. We said goodbye and hope they will become a needed meal for a fox family.
