Wednesday Walk In The Forest

in wednesdaywalk •  2 months ago 

For my walk I checked out some of the forest, behind the house, to see how it survived the snow and wind of the winter.

It’s quiet now but in another month the forest will be bustling with nature’s renewal of leaves and wild flowers. Even the birds will sing more sweetly.

There is still snow left in the forest. The trees hold the snow until the outside temperature rises a lot more than it has.

A rabbit track in the snow.

This might be the rabbit’s hole.

There’s evidence the squirrel had been out in the forest.

He uses this old mossy tree stump as a table for his feed of acorns.

The Yellow Bellied Sapsucker, a small woodpecker, left evidence on the Mountain Ash tree that he has been around drilling for sap.

The little woodpecker seems to like the Mountain Ash’s sap as there were quite a few with drill holes.

Nature takes back her own.... a decaying tree stump.

A sign of warmer weather when the lilac bush is starting to bud.

I’ll close off my walk with a bit of color....this flowering moss scattered along the forest path.

Thanks and for stopping [email protected] but I’m a long way from the prairies. 😊

I think I need to improve my geography. I tend to think of any green spaces near forests in the US as prairies

No problem. I’m in Prince Edward Island, Canada, Ozkdawg.
We do have Prairie Provinces, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta are called the Canadian Prairie Provinces.

Ah PEI. I'm sorry for not reading more upon your back story. I went to the west coast of Canada this year. But I definitely need to venture more eastwards at some point in the future. By looking at your photos it will inspire me to plan that next trip.

Mornin’ @goat-girlz. 💕 Thanks and yes it will be nice when spring gives a good blast of heat.😊

Awe..looks like you're nestled into a lovely spot there Jo! I would love to have trees like that in my backyard. Looks like that woodpecker had a grand old time on that tree. Terrific photos!! 💖

·

Thanks Dee! ❤️ That woodpecker did do a job on the tree.

Thanks @kamrunnahar! 😊

Howdy redheadpei! that was a great Wednesdaywalk! Still snow on the ground, wow. Not for long though, the forest will be bursting with life soon!

Mornin’ Cowboy! It’s been a long winter with piles of snow. We are having nice weather now. The trees grouped together in the forest really hold the snow later than other areas.
Everyone has complained about how slow it has been to shake the winter weather. I, for one, will be happy to feel the heat of summer and see all the flowers and trees blooming.

Howdy again redheadpei! yes, those long winters would be hard for me to take. But, the spring and summer will be glorious!
