An Afternoon Walk in the Woods

Well it wasn't a day at the beach, but sometime nothing can beat a great day spent at home. Saturday was a great breath of spring air around here. The weather was warm and the sun was shining bright. We spent the day with Sherman in the woods around our house. I took the camera along like always. I was also able to find something blue, white, and grey in the spirit of Project Spectrum.

The bit of blue above is actually right outside the front door. It is the bottom of a piece of spinning yard art we bought at a local art fair. It is one of those spinning things that hangs on the porch.

These white flowers are a sure sign that spring is here and warm weather is just around the corner. It is so nice to be able to spend a little time out in fresh spring air. The yellow daffodils are blooming too. The dogwood trees should be next.

I found some grey fungus growing on some trees. I'll have to work at getting some better shots of this - but Sherman was tired of waiting on me to take pictures. He was ready for the creek.

There is a creek that winds its way around the woods at our house and Sherman loves wading out in the water chasing sticks. The creek is not really deep or wide, but there are a couple of places that come to Sherman's shoulders. We've only found one place that goes over his head after a good rain. He found it by jumping in one day. After that jump, he will only wade into the water, but it is still one of his favorite things to do.
