The Mill

Wolcott Mill - 9am Saturday - We have stepped back in time and find it refreshing. My daughter and I arrive a bit early and enjoy our time together. The rest of the Brownie Scouts will be here soon, and everyone will earn a try-it badge called Movers.

Mill, oh mill upon the hill,
you turn your wheel by weather's will.

Miller, grind the grain to be
flour and bread for you and me.

We sing this kindergarten song as we step towards adventure. We have half an hour to explore the grounds. The morning air smells so appealing. A chorus of spring peepers welcomes us. Off we go!

Pussy Willows

The trail along a fast moving river...

...gradually turns, to follow not-so-fast water.

Vivian makes an important discovery: a raccoon mom and her little ones have already been here for breakfast.

Perhaps the little raccoons learned to fish today by watching their mother.

Skunk Cabbage, named for its smell.

Spring Beauties

A tiny Trout Lily seems to yawn and stretch and welcome the morning sun.

Dutchman's Britches make us think it's laundry day for the fairies!

Marsh Marigold

Mayapples, sometimes called mouse umbrellas

Two wet dogs having a grand time in the water, later jump on us with muddy paws!

Next Week....
