When we returned home we couldn't just go inside. Some of us lay down in a path to rest while the rest of us picked up sticks and pulled a few weeds. "Aww Mom it is a rough job keeping an eye on you and Dad. You know I don't like for you to take my picture. Geez can't a girl rest?" As Carol mentioned that her crocus was so happy I thought I would show you my happy Snowdrops. You can see their pretty little green white edged bells that they keep tucked in the white petals until it is warm and blowsy. They have their little blossoms open wide hoping for a pollinator. The only thing out is the wind. I hope it does the job. I want to move these little fellows around in the garden.

Blue Skies and Sunshine
It was a gorgeous winter day. We started out by taking Luna to the park for a nice long walk. The Wabash is still rising. It is supposed to crest wednesday. When it is like this our little creek is about full to overflowing in some places. We have nice little bridges to traverse most wet areas. The last time we were here there were oodles of mushrooms and fungus to take pictures of, today nothing. You can see the beautiful blue skies reflected in the muddy creek. There were some ferns growing in the rock outcroppings. I am always amazed at the tenacity of these ferns. I do think there are fewer ferns this winter. I think that the drought was hard on them this past summer.
