It was a beautiful day. I needed to run a couple of errands and wanted to teach Baby Willow about how nature is all around us. We saw many squirrels forging for black walnuts and other edibles. We saw Monarchs … Continue reading →

The weathermen stated this weekend was going to be the best for “peak” color in the trees; so C and I drove to near the river for a long walk with our dogs. Many people discuss the place where they … Continue reading →
