A great blue heron fishing in the shallows of the harbor.
A hornets' nest the size of a watermelon.
A hidden, handmade tree fort in the wood.
Crocuses blooming down the side of a hill.
Snow white swans.
Mud so deep it steals your boots and doesn't give them back.
Squirrels wintering in a neglected shed.
February's first frogs.
A stream swelling with melted snow.
The first little pale green points of daffodils.
Wind so wild you need to hold fast to a tree to steady yourself.
Sun so warm you shed your coat on the grass.
Wild geese everywhere.
