This morning I went for a jog along the paths next to Wachusett Reservoir; a jog, as I’m slowly getting myself back in shape, and nowhere near a full-tilt run yet :-). It was actually warmer than I expect this time of year, presenting nice slushy footing mixed with patches of ice. I’d rather be working my way through some fresh snow, as you get this wonderfully quiet run with just a bit of cushioning that makes the run feel that much better.
On advantage of the mud is that it managed to reveal a bit of scene to me that hadn’t caught my eye before…
In a way I found this little tableau to be a bit macabre, as it felt like an open burial of acorns in various states. At the same time, it does show the success of the nearby oaks in spreading their seed along the path.
Inspired by the WordPress Daily Prompt theme of Successful.
