Litchfield, Connecticut, has many a beautiful acre of land set aside for conservation. I took these photos along a walk through some of them on a bright March Sunday. I love the way March sunshine finds its way into everything. In the top photo, leaves and pine needs were actually bursting the skin of a fallen tree. It was strange and beautiful.

    I love it when bloggers show what they see in their walks, it's like discovering similarities in my walk and comparing differences too.

    Have a blessed week.

    Careful walking in Connecticut! Hopefully South Windsor is some distance from you:

    "Conn. Woman Finds Alligator Roaming down the Street


    "SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) -- A small alligator has been captured in South Windsor after it was found roaming on a local street.

    "Police say a woman walking near the sewer treatment plant Sunday afternoon spotted the 3 1/2 foot reptile on Vibert Road.

    "Police contacted the Department of Environmental Protection's Conservation police and DEP experts arrived at the scene to capture the alligator.

    "DEP officials believe the alligator had been a pet that was abandoned by its owners within the last 24 hours.

    "The alligator is being kept at the South Windsor Police Department until Monday, when it will be turned over to Rainforest Reptiles out of Massachusetts, an organization that works to educate people on reptiles and the importance of preserving their habitats."

  8. Wonderful pics, all of them. But that first one is out of this world!

  9. It's funny, we walked in the polder and saw on our walk also fallen trees, which they kept there to let them rot and be a home to small mammals and insects. It looks as if this also happens in your country.

  40. It's amazing how the smallest and most ignored things are so very beautiful ... a dead leaf.

    Death and life renewing itself .. these photo reminds me not to be afraid of death, as it is a beautiful part of life .. and nothing ever truly dies, it just revamp itself into something else.

  43. I have been walking the woods lately too. It is such fun, especially this time of year when the wildflowers are beginning to show their blooms. They always look so delicate in the seemingly harsh environment. They soldier on with their uniforms of cheer.
