making tracks

After many long years without pets, our home is once again graced with the pitter-patter of (not-so-little) paws. I have enjoyed not just hearing these paws, but observing the prints they make outside.

Of course, the puppy isn’t the only creature to make tracks around our house. The wild turkeys leave a delightful pattern of arrows in the snow.

stalking the stray leaf

As you may have noticed if you have seen me post lately, my eyes are often drawn to interesting leaves. On this morning’s walk, a curled leaf on the sidewalk caught my eye for looking like some sort of creature. And then once I stopped to photograph it, the puppy naturally had to check it out.
