Off Into The Woods We Went

With my girl not doing well we had been sticking close to home for the last year but it was nice out yes in the mid 30’s F and I surprised her with “Do you want to go for a walk in the woods? To which her reply was a wagging tale as she ran to the door to wait for us.


My Girl JT soon to be 13

So with camera in hand and a happy dog the two of us old folks set off for a trail that runs off behind my barn(future studio) to begin our walk.

It is a mixed forest with so many varieties of trees and plants.

There were places where snow was still visible as well as patches of icy areas we had to be careful of none us needed another injury.


All the rain and cold temperatures made for a pretty landscape.

I spotted something round up in a tree a little further ahead and pointed and asked “You know what that is to Ron?” he had no clue I did but used my zoom to make sure.

not with my zoom

This one is though

Porcupine in NH Forest
Ever get that feeling you are being watched well we were.

We kept walking and did for just about an hour as she is not well and it had been a while it is all about my girl these days




Border Collie in the woods
On the scent she tends to get a bit to far ahead so I call her back you never know if hunters have set traps out here.

I think I needed to get out here more than she did. Just so pretty in these woods I have called home for 30 years.


NH Forests
Round rocks remind me here in the Granite State of possible floods as we all know I deal with constantly do to a lake further back being released.




Vernal Pool in NH
Vernal Pools dotted today’s walk in the woods. Don’t let the ice fool you it was so beautiful out.



Tree Tops
Trees, what can I say you all know I dig trees.

Thanks for joining me.

Merry Christmas

Wishing You All Safe and Very Merry Christmas

Our snow has just about disappeared here in southeastern New Hampshire but there is word out tonight some flakes will be in the air this week ahead.

Our garden club sold over $1,000 worth of Poinsettias and Wreaths and a few Kissing Balls as well. The last order will go to a church here in town on Thursday so they can get their alter ready for the Twelve Days of Christmas.  We will make between $300/$400 for our effort and make the town that much prettier this spring.

My girl(JT) has been put on meds to help with her pain I also and taking her for gentle walks to help with our ongoing weight loss plan. 🙂

Trying to get into the holiday spirit by getting out and doing things with others in town and making an effort to get dressed and show up no matter what so many gone from the family table this year as many of you it is not easy.
