Tuesday, and it felt like summer

Not so much today, but here's what Boofus and I did yesterday:

Finally, my Jack-In-The-Pulpits are making an appearance

Open the roof, there's the preacher

Trees are finally greening up

Wild blue phlox, I'm told

Little butterfly takes a break from buzzing us

There used to be just one place in the whole woods I found Jack In The Pulpit.  Tuesday, I found them in about five places, nowhere near that spot.

Scrappy takes a dip at North Bank

Actually saw a fish here... first one in about 4 years.  I think he was lost...

Don't let those heavenly trees fool you.  It's a climb from North bank to Dead Tree Road!


  1. Chris:
    I will say that seeing more GREEN around the area makes it look so much more "walkabout-friendly".
    Jack in the pulpits...haven't seem them in (too) many years, either.
    Nice find.
    Good post.

    Stay safe up there, brother.

  2. Is that what they're called? I never knew that! Jack in pulpit- very cool! Look at Scrappy cooling down his paws in the stream. I love doing that too Scrappy!

  3. The trees bring some promise at least. It was warm here for a couple of days but it's cold again. My hostas bloomed at least and that gives me the promise of warmth around here soon! C'mon summer heat!!!
