March is brown and green and purple, and brings with it the most humble beginnings. If you don't walk with your eyes to the ground, you will miss the first wild anemones and tiny shoots of green. 

I can't tell you what a relief it was for me to finally go deep into nature again, with my camera, my boy, and my dogs. We were very sick for quite a while, and the walls were closing in on us. Fresh air, things to explore, and movement did wonders for us all. 

Walking outside is what Rafael enjoys now more than anything else. If it were up to him, we would only come indoors for a quick snack and then head back out. He picks up sticks, stones, and leaves. He stomps in puddles and plops down in muddy ditches. This little boy loves nature as much as I do.

The little badger is a toy that Rafael took with him on our walk. It looked so cute in the patch of moss, I just had to take a picture.

Hoping you are all enjoying the first signs of spring!
