Signs of Spring

Hello Everyone,

On Easter Sunday it was a mild day here in New England.  Because of that my hubby and I decided to go for a walk... a 6 mile walk!

I am glad we did, it was good to get out.  By now, I have been longing for spring for about 6 months now... how about you?

Along our walk we saw some true signs of spring...


Take a look... the beavers have been very busy along the river beds.  

It is really unbelievable that they could carve out these trees with their teeth and jaws!  Amazing!!  You can see the little teeth marks.  Check out the one tree on the right.. look how much they have carved from that one.


This one is coming along too.  Now mind you these are not small trees either.  

I would love to know how many beavers are actually taking part in this lumber jack party.  There are bound to be some BIG beaver dams along the river.

Anyway, spring is coming!


Until Next Time...

neat - I haven't taken a six mile walk in a long time!it seems like 3 or 4 is my limit now. I love seeing beaver close up but only have a couple times.

It was a gorgeous weekend, we got out and did some walks ourselves, so nice to be out of the house again.

Now that your son is all moved, and all of you are back from your travels, how are you feeling about being empty nesters? My husband and I take a lot of walks together now, it has become a nice tradition for just the two of us.

I love seeing God's creatures at work! I know some see it as a nuisance and destructive, but at the same time it is what they were put here to do.
