“Spring is Sprung
The Flowers are Ris
I wonder where
The Birdies Is”

So today is the first day of Spring, and it’s snowing. Yesterday it was 60°F (and for a few days before that too) and today it’s 30°F and snowing.

 

Noticed this today while watering the garden around the ponds – the first frog seen in the pond this year. He was sitting up on a lily pad – watching all the little bugs running around on top of the water, eying them up for lunch perhaps?

Lilac trees are supposed to be purple, or “lilac”, and indeed we have a number of such plants in our yard.

This view is looking north across much of the property toward the house – the trees in the row are Eastern Redbud, a lilac, and a flowering Dogwood tree. The road is visible way in the distance on the left – about 180 yards away. Continue reading »
