Outside (and Inside) in March

Outside (and Inside) in March

This month has flown by, and after being hammered by storm after storm, I’m ready for spring!  OK.  I feel that way at the end of every winter, but three Nor’easters in a row is notable.  I also didn’t get outside much, but I made it a priority to get out recently, and even though the snow is still on the ground, I could tell that spring was coming.  Bring it on!

And a few from my favorite greenhouse.  Greenhouses are a great place to visit in the winter and early spring!

The geometric patterns formed by the spikes on cacti are so cool!

I hope you are having lovely weather wherever you are!  See you next month with more sewing!

I woke up this morning and realized right away that I had completely forgotten to prepare a blog post for today!  Haha.  That doesn’t usually happen!  So, it’s coming a little late, but better late than never.  Here are some of the things I’ve seen outside (and a few inside!) this month.

My family and I went to the New England Aquarium this week.  The created world is so amazing (and so, to a much lesser degree, are the phones in our cameras these days)!  I can’t believe these pictures turned out, but here are a few from the Aquarium.

We also had a day this week that was in the 70’s (Fahrenheit), so of course we went to the beach…as did everyone else.  I fell in love with the colors of the sky.

And now for the way that most of February looked.

This one is coming to you a little later in the day than usual, but that’s because I was on a mini-vacation Wednesday to Thursday and we got back late last night.  I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share some photos of where we went, because there was so much beautiful outdoor scenery.  Despite the fact that these pictures were all shot on my phone rather than with my DSLR, I think there are still some good ones.  Get ready to vicariously visit the White Mountains of New Hampshire!

The first place we went was Diana’s Bath in the North Conway area of New Hampshire (NH).  It’s a series of little water falls that you can explore and play in.

I guess this post could also be sub-titled “Amazing Fungi of New Hampshire”.  There were so many weird and amazing fungi all over the woods!

Next we went over to Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves in North Woodstock, NH.  With the help of boardwalks built along a river, you can explore the rocks and caves in a way you wouldn’t be able to otherwise.  These pictures don’t do justice to the amazing boardwalk system they have here (which has over 1,000 steps) or the caves you can squeeze through if you so desire.

It was a great trip, and I hope we can go back and explore more one day.  Have you ever been to the White Mountains?  What did you do there?
