It was a perfect day for exploring the last of the winter woods. Warm enough that we could wear spring coats but cool enough that there was soapy snow on the ground and not slush and endless puddles.

So we last-chance-d those stumps deep in the woods that are covered head to toe stem to stern in mushrooms. M even walked a few feet into the still-frozen marsh to get him some toppling bullrushes.

And I deeply appreciated how each of the trees has a meltwater halo.

How I can have a camera and a bottle of water and M somewhere nearby in the woods and my jacket flapping in the breeze and my nose running...and be perfectly content.

I was going to use one without my everloving boot but I think the pic needs it. For scale.

It also lends it a certain...bootiness.
