Ice Out

Last year at this time my kayak was in the water.  This year it will still be a few days.  On the other hand I heard peepers in the swamp down the road.

A Warm Spring Day's Songs

The sun was shining and the temperature rose up to almost 60F this afternoon.  Almost all of the snow is gone now, leaving just a few traces in shady corners.

Skunk cabbage is in full bloom, phoebes and wood frogs and song sparrows are singing.  There are buds on the arbutus.
The streams are running

Last bits of snow
