The moss in the woods

Today was a beautiful spring-like day, 75 degrees outside, lovely light breeze. So I prised myself away from my computer and took a two-mile hike in the woods, just me and my friend and a few dozen other people thrilled to be outdoors. There are no leaves out yet, but the ground and rocks were covered with mosses, dark velvet green, spongy brown, and lacy white.

Tomorrow it's supposed to snow, so this was just a teaser. Something to make us even more anxious for the final break from winter, probably three or four weeks away. For now, it was enough.

Thank you for the beautiful photos. It gives me hope that spring will soon be here.

(It was 58 in Indy today. But I think it's supposed to turn rainy and blustery tomorrow.)

It'll be nasty here in St. Louis too, but at least we know it's almost over!

Thanks so much for all your kind comments. I'm still getting used to my camera, but it was fun to get outside and try it out.

Missouri is a little like Oregon--very humid and green (but no ocean!).
