Away with those Leaves!I do miss the leaves in the winter, but their absence does permit several interesting sightings that would otherwise not have happened. The only time I have seen porcupines in nature is a result of the absence of leaves. And my morning walks are a lot more entertaining when creatures cannot hide in leaves. Here were two little creatures unexpectedly the object of a lot of human (and some canine) interest shortly after dawn a couple of days ago.
