today i found this where i used to go to harvest basswood. in the warm sunshine, the freezing pond was thawing instead. just up from this spot is the dam, and feeding this is a running stream where the dairy farmer who used to farm this place had his dump. we know that because we have found lots of treasure there, toy guns, bottles, broken crockery.
it was a brilliant day, warm and a bit breezy. wendy kept closer than usual, even got kicked inadvertently a couple of times. the reason: people shooting guns in the neighborhood. she hates guns, thunder, airplanes.
rock sandwich. boulder book. way too big for me to pry apart. but nature is. a good walk.
