February is a great time to hike. The temps are usually in the 70s and many of the leaves are still off the trees for better bird watching (or spotting
scary neat things).
We’ve been hiking every weekend this month and this past weekend we hiked both Saturday and Sunday. These photos are from our hike at Ross Prairie State Forest.
There are so many spring flowers springing up.
Yellow Jessamine is everywhere right now.
I’m glad I looked it up in my identification book because I found out this, “All parts of the plant are poisonous and contain alkaloid similar to strychnine.”
It grows on a vine with stems to 20 ft. long and has trumpet shaped, fragrant yellow flowers.
Now if you’re a big scaredy cat about going deep in the forest, stop reading now!!!
In the darkest reaches
of the enchanted forest
there are monsters ready to GET YOU!
Well, they are monsters if you take this photo to picmonkey and play for about a half an hour! hahahaha!
Any monsters in your world today?
Or pretty yellow flowers?
