A walk by the pond (our nature outing)
(More about them here.)
Winterberry holly--at least, we're pretty sure that's what it was. Bright red juicy berries still on the bush from last fall, but no spring growth on it yet--maybe some buds.
A muskrat swam up to the edge of the water and then disappeared, probably into a hole in the bank. Mr. Fixit and Dollygirl disagreed on whether it had a tail like a beaver or like a muskrat, but it was acting more like a muskrat.
Lots of ducks and geese, and robins, and a blue heron further out.
A few daffodils coming up at the front of the farmhouse.
There were a few little bits of green here and there, but it was a hard winter and I think spring is having a struggle.
