A Good Romp in the Woods

May 4th, 2011 by zoe No Comments

Things are slowly starting to green and unfurl. Bits of color are sparking here and there but overall we have yet to reach the full flush of spring up here in the mountains. In these parts skunk cabbage and fiddle heads are the first to announces themselves, signaling the warmer weather ahead.  But looking out over the garden gate it’s still hard to believe, come July, the hillside will be covered in tasty wild blueberries.  Out beyond that blue fence past our blueberry hill lies the big woods.  Those woods are our summer playground.  Where we walk, muck about in the stream, bike, and  – make fairy houses.

I think these little elves are on their way to our wee woodland house right now. I hope they enjoy the fiddle heads we left for them.
