Snow Trails

This past week I have been watching the family dog while my parents were away. She certainly kept me on my toes, making sure we saw just about every park, path, and trail in the greater Northeast Ohio area. The snow was beginning to melt, leaving little foreshadowings of spring as well as the clearly printed paths of the locals. I thought as an ode to the slowly fading winter, I would share just a few traces we stumbled upon on one of our weekend walks…
Just so we’re clear, that last one is my White German Shepherd…not a wolf. What traces of spring are you enjoying this month?

    I’m super impressed with your animal footprint identifications! And your designs for each one are just lovely. I’ve been becoming obsessed with any and all new spring blooms I come across — it’s kind of a problem, really. :)

      Apparently, one of the very few lessons I retained from years of Girl Scouts. Wish I had spotted more blooms than little paw paths, those sound so lovely. Mostly just leaves and grass around the tracks.

    Little flower blooms have been peaking through the melting snow on my runs each day. I can’t wait for spring to be in full swing here!

    I second Diana — I am impressed you can tell whose prints are whose!

    Love this post, so much! The way you curated it is just so fun and creative. :)

    I am loving the little buds that are growing on trees. It’s so nice to see them green again!

      Thanks so much Latrina, and much agreed! I’ll take green over white woods any day.

    Absolutely cool post.
    One thing is for sure, I’m with the girls above, I would never be able to tell what did the prints by looking at it.

      Oh trust me, I had to verify many online. ;)
