Spring is Here
Spring is here! The signs are everywhere. Trees are greening out and flowering. The May Apples are up, the dogwoods are just starting to leaf out. Winter birds such as the Cedar waxwings are still hanging around waiting on the bountiful supply of berries from fruiting bushes and trees. But early spring migrants are arriving. A White-eyed vireo was spotted high in an oak tree.
Shown here is a bumblebee on a flowering redbud. The redbuds are a sure sign spring is here to stay. This image was taken in my backyard on March 9th. Whenever the redbuds are in full bloom, the dogwoods will soon be showing off their white bracts. The warm days, although not quite consistent yet, will bring lots of photo opps for insects. Time to start looking for damselflies and dragonflies.
