A week ago, the Old Forest looked like this:

Today, we found buckeyes budding.

And we found celandine poppies sprouting.

We humans tend to take the natural wonders of our daily lives for granted. In the next few months, as the sap rises, make time to visit the Old Forest. Bring your family and your friends. Open your eyes to this quiet miracle in our own backyard.

Down the great currents
Let the boat swing;
There was never winter
But brought the spring!
