Nature Study-Week 22

This morning we met at a lovely county park. Our full group was in good health and ready to walk on the trails, which hasn't happened in several weeks! All 19 of us:)

We spotted a tree with plenty of woodpecker marks, some turkey vultures, a few worms from yesterday's rain, and a beautiful Golden Wattle tree. We have been noticing these bright yellow trees all over the valley in the past few weeks. They seem to have hit their bloom point, and until today, I'd never had a chance to see one close up. They have fern-like leaves and fluffy yellow flowers, "sort of like suns all together," according to my girl. Pretty, right?

It was chilly in the wind, but you can feel the California sunshine hinting at spring. Right around the corner!
