Watery Wednesday

This is my creek. After a rain, I can hear it splashing and talking from my deck. I have played and waded and skated on this creek. I've thrown and skipped rocks. My daughter has done the same. I've tried to catch fish. I've successfully caught many crayfish and frogs and toads in it. I've even caught a snake or two sunning on the banks. From standing in the creek, I have spied deer, pileated woodpeckers, bluebirds,
and even morels.

It's not a big creek.
Many branches are down in it from the ice storm in 2009.
There are sandstones and salamanders and snails.
It seems cool down at the creek, even when it is sweltering.
If it weren't for the ticks, I'd probably live in the creek.

I love my creek.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. love the reflections in the top shot. :)

  2. we often visit the creek at the Ecotarium in Worcester, MA and EVERY time my 9 yo sighs when it's time to go and says she wishes we had a creek in our yard. CREEKS ARE MAGICAL!!!

  3. Reminds me of the creek I played in as a child outside near my grandparents' house. Beautiful!

  4. I miss creeks that you can wade in. Our creeks (well, canals) are notorious for gators. :)

  5. It's easy to see why you love your creek. Keep on lovin'!


    Feeling rather ducky?
    Here’s what I would do:
    Find a pond or puddle,
    One that’s right for you;
    Take a sturdy life vest,
    Strap it on your back;
    Jump into the puddle,
    Give a little quack!
