These are just some of the things we have been stumbling across while in the woods.

A spring peeper peepin away at Middle Creek to find a mate! peep peep peep

A rare find, a Spotted Salamander. Shortly after we spotted this spotted creature, we found it had given birth to several large milky white egg sacs. So exciting....

A spring favorite, nettle! Early nettles are delicious to eat and provide tons of calcium and beneficial properties. Those of you who have allergies should start harvesting this to make tea (don't forget it does sting so maybe gloves if you like!) We drink this all season long because its great for everything!

Scarlet Cups growing through the leaves, first of the year!
