Yes, it is early April, and the battle between Old Man Winter’s dismissal and spring’s arrival causes us to experience warm sun and gorgeous blooms one minute:
Then a chilly blanket of snow the next.
Yet no matter the weather, I can assure you a fulfilling affair with our property during your springtime stay. Snow or sun, renew by immersing in the sights: stream, hilltop, or woodland. Renew by immersing in the sounds: the chattering birds, the coursing water, the rustle of wind. Renew and energize as the landscape transitions to vibrant green and springtime flowers liven the scenery.
There is plenty of opportunity for photography, plant and bird ID, and relishing in the surrounding scenary. If you’re interested in any or all of these then I suggest you get outside and explore!
Unless it is windy, walk our trails and enjoy Mother Nature’s soundtrack. Experience our wooded trails leading to hilltop or creek views in the splendor of a snowy or sunny day. Take a bird or plant identification guide and challenge yourself. Even in late winter, keep a close eye out for snowdrops and/or winter aconites in flower!
Notice bird boxes positioned all over the property. These collectively make up our bluebird trail. Take time to watch for male and female bluebirds choosing a nest box or feeding young nestlings. The blue coloration of the male bird is nearly impossible to miss!
•Experience the season
As spring progresses, flowering bulbs scattered across the woodland floor add pops of color all around. Then, the woods bursts into green as buds unfurl and trees leaf out.
Rhododendrons become covered in a display of large, purple blossoms. This particular specimen greets those walking on a trail.
Spring time is arriving at Honey Run. The temps are cooler, the air crisp and fresh. Bundle up, explore our property, and take advantage of all this season has to offer, snow or sun. Reconnect and renew, envelop in the beauty and peace nature has to offer. Experience spring time at Honey Run!
