Spring has most definitely sprung in my neighborhood, and with a vengeance! We've been experiencing some odd weather patterns, unseasonably warm and wet patterns have kicked the spring woodland into overdrive.

Come walk along with me on my trip afield yesterday to the spring woods to do a little gathering and foraging. At these current rapid greening and growing rates, I'm soon going to need a machete in the creek bottoms!
