Although the landscape is still brown and muddy, we are finding bits of spring. A little bud here, a new green sprig there. My mother has always delighted in nature, and I got the bug from her. Im happy to report that my 3 are following right along in our footsteps and it is awesome to have new partners to share the seasons with. And I have to note, that although this urban life we lead now is not my first choice, the parks and nature centers are awesome. There are so many for us to chose from and it is easy to lose ourselves in the woods for a few hours.
