Whenever we’re out for a walk I keep my eyes open looking for any sign of spring. On Monday I finally saw some wildflowers! It was just a day after seeing snow on this ground cover.
Here they are! Rue Anemone…the prettiest flowers this spring, mainly because they were the first.
Today while driving back to the cabin, Jim spotted this little fox along the edge of a pond. We pulled over, shut the car off and I started taking pictures. It was really cool the way it laid down and watched me!
Just like the deer, it’s coat is all faded out too.
We got a daytime picture of what we think is the bear that visited us the other night. It’s possible that Jim scared it away for awhile. He bobby trapped the bird feeder by setting a plastic coffee can full of water in it. We’re thinking it went something like this…Mr. Bear comes along and heads over to the bird feeder (which is hinged to tip). Usually the hinged top prevents the bear from breaking the whole thing. Anyway, when it stood up to eat the seed, the feeder tray tipped and the cold water (hopefully) dumped all over Mr. Bear. We didn’t see this happen, but we haven’t seen him since the morning the coffee container was laying empty on the ground.
I'm the female version of "Jack of all trades, master of none". I make bottle cap pincushions as well as other items made with felt and sell them in my Etsy Store, Up The Creek. I make most of these pincushions while at our cabin in northwest Wisconsin. Our cabin is right "Up the Creek" from an active beaver pond. There's always something going on out there. Birds and other wildlife are abundant Up the Creek. I try to get good pictures of bird and wildlife and will post them, even if they're not award winners. My goal is to share what I see. Not to win any medals.
