Among our finds were roly-poly bugs, which are apparently land living crustaceans called Armadillidium Vulgae, but we'll still call them roly-poly bugs.
A singing cardinal drew our attention to the tree tops. We had a bit of trouble locating the bird among the leaves, but eventually, we found her.
We also found may apples, which apparently can be used for medicinal purposes, but we just enjoyed their umbrella like shapes and looked for budding flowers.
A flowering dog wood created a burst of brilliant white in the otherwise green and brown forest.
Along the path, we found ferns unfurling.
Due to illness, it has been several weeks since we were able to get outside and enjoy the beauty of creation during a walk. We were grateful to do so this past weekend, and hope to return to our regular, almost weekly, nature walks.
