Signs of Life


Budding leafIn spite of uncertain weather, we are finding signs of life on our walks.  A few green leaves showing here and there and some kind of blossom I could not identify.Spring BlossomAbbie and I managed to walk through the woods on one of my favorite trails on Sunday.  We had to negotiate three downed trees, and some muddy places, but it was a treat to get back to the trails after so long.

Wildflowers will probably be late to bloom this year, but the leaves are beginning to appear.green leaves

Usually by now, I have taken down the seed feeder and replaced it with nectar for the Hummingbirds, but I don’t expect to see Hummingbirds until there are some flowers blooming, so we are leaving the seed feeder up for now.

The weather continues to be very changeable.  Almost 80 degrees today and barely fifty tomorrow.  I was glad to leave the gloves and hat at home for our walk this morning, but will have to keep them handy for a while yet!
