A walk in the woods

After being fortified by the Irish soda bread, Tom and I and the dogs took off up the hill, into the woods. We haven't walked for ages because the snow has been too deep. Today the temperature was in the high 30ºs, and the snow has melted a fair bit, so we decided to go.

I love the way the branches look against the sky

  1. What a wonderful walk. I bet you were all tired trudging through that snow. It looked to me like you needed snowshoes. I bet the dogs will be sore tomorrow. One of those nice sores though.

  2. Beautiful!
    Snow must be a pain sometimes, but I'd have loved to see some here...

  3. Oh, sigh. What a beautiful day! Your pictures make we wish I were walking with you. The days here are very sunny and lovely but they are c-c-c-COLD (-30C or -22F) so although the sun begs at me to come and play I just c-c-c-CAN'T! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the thawing winter on my behalf. (You didn't know you were doing that for me, did you?)

  4. I love, love, love this "day in the life" photo essay, Nan!! Your photographs are so beautiful. My favorite is the leaf in the snow. It would make a fabulous book cover.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
