In February, my area of the world becomes a landscape of grey and brown. The absence of foliage creates in me  a renewed appreciation for the form of tree limbs against the winter sky.

Vines, hidden by leaves in warmer months, fascinate me as they twist and turn around the tree branches that support their winding attempt to reach the sun.

The sweet-smelling blossoms of the Autumn Clematis, growing along the banks of the creek, have disappeared, leaving behind mahogany (Color Your World – 120 Days of Crayola) seeds in a cloud of snowy fluff.

Shallow puddles and ponds form an ephemeral mosaic.

Daylight is once again lengthening, bringing the slumbering wildlife out of their burrows for water and food.

The emerging leaves of celandine is a sure sign that Spring is on the way.

    1. We aren’t sure what the footprints were, but we think it was most likely a raccoon. We saw some signs of beaver in the area (freshly gnawed trees), we know a lot of skunks are starting to come out (unfortunately a lot get hit on our roads) and the stream also has muskrats. Our area has a lot of opossums and squirrels. There are rumors that coyotes are back in the area, and also rumors of wild pigs. A little further north there are black bears.
