I went looking again in the pasture to see if I could find the Bloodroot that was growing there last year. So far I haven’t seen a trace of it. But I did find this deer bone which had been gnawed on, probably by small rodents over the winter.
Then I saw these very happy violets growing next to a pile of donkey manure. Next year they’ll probably be twice as big!
I also came upon this owl pellet. All fur and bones, regurgitated about the owl digested the nutritious parts of whatever animals this was.
