Discovering the Beaverdam Swamp

This discovery happened last week, right after it had rained heavily. Well that could describe almost every week this year, couldn’t it? It has been a very long time since we have been here; the kids were…kids.

We saw several huge turtles! No alligators, but I am sure there are there!
Tree limbs have always fascinated me. I think they are very expressive. Maybe I’ll start incorporating them into some art journal pages or mixed media. You can’t really tell, but they are full of tiny buds…the promise of new life which is never really gone, just hidden.
