Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

Beautiful sky beyond the treetops of my 'Observation Birch.' I call it that as at its base is one place that I sometime stop to rest and observe what life is springing forth. Evidence of spring is beginning to show up near Observation Birch. Marsh Marigolds are appearing, and shoots of various plants that I haven't identified as yet. The old railroad bed and truss are a short ways away; and part of the old sheep fence line remains. Reminders of the days when trains were common . . . . but now the tracks and the trains are gone. That pathway is silent except when a fourwheeler rumbles by or in winter a snowmobile streaks through the path of white snow.

Though today is overcast and the north winds are blowing cold, there is plenty of evidence that spring has begun here in New Scotland.

Beautiful pictures...I love seeing what is growing up your way. Our marsh marigolds are sparse this year, due to low water during their dormant juncos (snowbirds) are gone! Yippie!
