We celebrate Lucy's birthday on Cinco de Mayo every year, not for any particular reason--it's just the date we picked. So we decided to treat her to her two favorite things: a nice long walk in the woods, and a trip to Chow Hound to buy treats and sniff the captive bunnies. (By the way, the title of this post is also the title of a wonderful book by Bill Bryson, which you should read if you haven't already.)
The woods were blooming with beautiful trillium.
Another good reason for a walk in the woods? Ramps! These will be made into something delicious.
A young deer watched our progress along the trail from a ridge. The zoom on my digital camera is useless, so this is the best photo I could get. Can you spot him?
Here he is.
This is what I wore--unintentionally, the colors of the Mexican flag. Well, the skirt is more coral pink than red, but still. You can't really see it, but my blouse is a vintage middy-style, with little blue raindrops on it.
