Today I went to my spot in search to find spring plants popping up from the ground. I hadn’t found any woody plants but I did find drooping intermediate wood fern leftover from the Fall. I was excited to see them again after the winter had covered their bodies. Although I hadn’t found any new woody plants in my exact spot I walked further and found barberry. And the moss on the logs in my spot had grown back. Today I heard chickadees, white throated sparrows, as well as birds I have yet to identify.
