A spring walk in the woods exploring in our backyard is fun during all times of the year. We have a special love for early spring when the forest begins to change from the muted winter landscape to the growth of new life in the forest. The green we were hoping to find fiddleheads while wandering one evening after work.
Fiddleheads are found along riverbanks during a very brief period in the spring. You can typically find them in grocery stories here in Maine for a limited time too. We were fortunate that our evening foraging led to fiddleheads for dinner or "suppah" to throw in an extra Maine twist. Super fun and so yummy too. We were sure to pick plenty, but not all. Leaving some behind will help to encourage growth again next year.
There is something extra special about enjoying a wonderful walk in the woods and closing out the evening with an amazing dinner found and picked with our own hands. Jared did most of the picking as the dogs ran and swam in the river and I got to soak it all in and create images.
Ah, spring is here!
