what did I find today?

I walked past this area not that long ago, and never saw these remains, I would have been just feet away. I saw a path I had taken before, saw that there was a veering off to the left, I took that, last time I stayed on the right. Hello.. at first I wasn’t sure that my eyes were seeing what I thought were remains, but as I looked more closely, I knew it was the remains of ??. At first I only saw a few bones, but when I looked around I discovered the rest of them. I did look for more, but this is what I found today. The bones were well bleached and very light.. so I suspect they have been there for awhile.

My mission today was to look for moose scat (poop).. I did find droppings, but not like I saw the other day (when I didn’t take a picture. .$%^ horseradish#$# these droppings are different and not the same colour …

Was out there early, but not the first, I had a chat with the chap who was already back from his “hike”. he has seen at least 4 moose along the road I was going to explore over the last years. He is a regular, and happy to tell me about his discoveries, the area I was in the other day is where he came across a mid size black bear. (when it was up on his hind feet, it was about his height)… I forgot if he told me when that was.. sigh.. I was more intent on finding out if he had seen any moose scat during his morning walk. No he had not.. just dragon flies.

yes there were a lot of mosquitos, they got worse as the sun began to warm things up.

If you know what that scat is that was found today, don’t be shy, even if its a guess.. I can look it up..

Wordless Wednesday =sunshine yellows and….


So pretty, so bright, little dandelion

you are the Bee’s delight


no matter where you grow, 

your golden glow

will beckon


and of course, euphorbia polychroma

the dense tuft of surprisingly green leaves

and lovely bright yellow bracts


reaching for the skies 

the magnolia tree is preparing to shine

in a day or two

these delicate  fuchsia buds will open


the deep defined leaves of the ivy 

have started their climb


soon the buddha will be covered

not smothered,

but dressed in a living cloak or vest


next to the corkscrew hazel

this Amur maple has

started to protest the long winter

and is showing her strong desire

to break free and thrive again


all around

new growth abounds

the ground has come alive

and so my dears, have I

for like the seasons

each day is a new beginning

as the bees stir and begin their quests

the delicious dandelions

awaits their visit

Yay another day has begun

Happy Wednesday everyone!
