A walk along the edge of the red maple swamp in our backyard, and a dove is watching us.
Intrepid explorers are we. Snow and ice but the swamp is not all the way frozen yet. Soon.
Radar is 5 months old now. From our mudroom door out through the woods, to the field by the pond, then along a path as far as we can go into the red maple swamp and back is a half mile, a nice morning walk for the pup and us.
He knows the word “birds” and looks up to see them fly.
Aw! Sounds like he’s appreciating nature just as much as you are!
