Walking the fields

There are still a few patches of snow, more snow may fall, but even two days from the official start today feels like spring.  A beautiful sky, a warm temperature (60), and you can declare winter over! There is more than evidence of mosses growing; I saw an emerging patch of oregano in the field, escapees from an herb garden of many years ago.
This field is to the south of the white pine and oak plantation pictured yesterday and paths through it are maintained by the Hermitage staff and volunteers.  Here Willow goes off lead and races up and down, round and round, enjoying herself immensely.

  1. This, for some strange reason, reminds me of Morels. Are they in this area? I know they are further north.
