Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

Green everywhere!

Suddenly the woods aren't looking nearly so brown. While most of the trees are not yet budding, the bloodwort and lots of other sorts of groundcover are popping up!

Hat tip to the fun albino robin spotting in Athol!

The stream is down to 5.2 inches.
The fire danger remains HIGH (VERY HIGH to our north).
At 9:30 am, it is 60 degrees
Overcast right now with the barometer at 29.15
The Cascades are still running, but they have slowed down considerably.

Lot's of beautiful little flowers on the sides of the trails. The trails are much dryer than last week, but still pretty damp and muddy. Mud baths for all the doggies today!!

Tina, the white ones (that close up at night: so fun) are bloodwort. And should you pick one, as our youngest did over the weekend, you'll find out why they have their name.
And then you'll have to scrub your hands!
