As I write this, January 14, the weather feels almost balmy. What little snow we had on the ground has once again, somewhere and in some form, joined the water cycle. Let’s take advantage of the lack of snow and frozen earth and go a-knocking. Go wandering through your favorite nature area, it could be your backyard, and knock three times on a rock (kind of flat, not too big or heavy) and then tip the rock toward you and see who or what may be home.
Lift gently. say a quiet ‘hello’, wish them a good rest of the winter and then gently place the rock down again in the exact spot.
