Our trip to Patuxent Wild Life Refuge and the list that keeps on growing

Last week Tuesday was incredible.  The Sun was shining. The temperature was in the 60s.  So, I took J and A to the Patuxent Wild Life Refuge (K was sick and stayed home with my hubby, who was also sick!).  We had a great time walking the trails and taking in nature's beauty.  God's gifts abound there and it is not difficult to see all His gifts displayed in a place like that . .

 522. Discovering a beaver's handiwork


523. Boy wonder

524. Nature's bright colors


525. Minnows

526. A walk through the woods


527. Swans on the lake


528. A tree adorned with it own ornaments

530. The warm sun
531. pine needle carpet
532. The sound of the rustle of leaves in the trees

  1. These are beautiful pictures! I am loving this warm Virginia winter also.

    About the chicken fat- it may be gone rancid after sitting out for several hours, but I'm starting to see that it also may have been the flu. At any rate, we're on the mend and all is well! Now if I could only get the kids to drink my stock!
