Liverworts 2

     Took another walk through Oak Openings yesterday with my friend Ruta.  The landscape is still wintry and quiet, brightened only by Mosses, Lichens and the odd Liverwort (seen here growing by itself, without the support of moss, as in the recent post).  
     We finished by returning to the wetlands area where we had seen Skunk cabbage peeking through the mud.  Alas, there are no leaves yet, only spikes, although more than before.
     The cardinals and Titmice continue to sing.  I even heard a Robin singing the other day.  It took me a moment to recognize it.

  1. I did the same thing last week. Stepped into the backyard . . heard this familiar bird . . . couldn't quite place it . . . and my heart lifted as I realized it was a robin.
