Laura and I have yet to see any new growth in the state of Maine. In November, everything was pretty much already dead. Any chance at glimpsing anything in the way of new growth was experienced back in Connecticut during the Spring of 2013. And we’ve been through that for five years, so it was getting somewhat boring. Now Maine – that’s exciting. We don’t have any idea what types of plants are around here. I’m sure we’ll learn all about them though, especially what’s edible and what’s not.
This morning, I noticed that the woods were looking just a tad thicker. I mean, I couldn’t see through them as well as I used to be able to. Even Laura mentioned that things were looking more, “red” out there. I think she was referring to the Maple buds. She’s right though. It’s more red than it’s ever been. And it’s thicker too.
I wanted to take some pictures and get them posted as soon as possible because I like to know the dates of when things happen. I look back here and compare year to year. It’s fun. So, I just went outside and grabbed some shots of some buds, a few baby ferns and a swamp plant of some sort. I don’t know what any of these things are, but it’s a pretty decent snapshot of what’s going on today.
