Let’s go for a walk!
But we haven’t had lunch yet…..
It’s a nice day, and awfully warm for January.
Let’s forget lunch and take a bagful of those muffins you made the other day.
We can eat them if we get hungry.
Well then, let’s go!
We found the place to park, and started in the path to Flat Point.
When you come out of the first stretch of woods, Arnie’s barn is directly ahead.
On the other side of the field’s fence line we find bones.
We found more raccoon bones, and two raccoon skulls, and then passed through the woods behind the barn, into the fields that lead down to the Tisbury Great Pond.
The weather was cloudy and windy, but warm for January.
Across the pond were scores of crows, foraging perhaps, or maybe just being nosy and inquisitive, which is a very crow thing to do. There was a lot a crow talk coming from this “murder” of crows.
In a patch of pondside switchgrass, we found some poison ivy getting established. The short upright vines were plentifully covered with berries. These berries may feed a hungry bird, later on this winter.
Heading back, we saw a few dandelion flowers.
Flowers in January.
How about that???
