Early Spring Flowers

Ground Ivy

Blue Violet

Early spring wildflowers are starting.  Some that many believe herald the arrival of spring.

Enjoy!

Dandelion 

Turtles are Out



While walking along the lake, one hears little 'plunk's.  I couldn't help but notice the timid turtles have ventured out to sunbath.  I was happy to see and hear so many little ones.  The fox and raccoon didn't get all of last year's eggs.


Enjoy!

Rise and Shine!


Tuesday, Rue Anemone were barely visible as little red sprouts peeking out from behind leaves on the forest floor.  Today, although still small, several can be seen in bloom.  

Enjoy!

Curious Orange Mound





While driving by the park, a curious orange mound has attracted my attention.  There has been a lot of tree clean-up recently.  This tree was cut.  A closer look at the stump explains why.

Enjoy!

Birds in Trees



Found several different birds in trees this morning.  Be it a Canadian Goose swimming in the reflection of a tree.  Or a couple of wood ducks nest hunting among the branches of a tree.  Or the fungi called 'Turkey' tail growing on a fallen tree.  ;-)

Enjoy!

Male or Female?


Near the first bridge I found and confirmed a male and female couple in residence:  Pussy willows.  I saw the two bushes.  I saw the differences in the pussy willow flowers.  I just didn't realize they were a male plant and female plant until this year.  Plants that are male or female (not both) are called dioecious.  The above photo is of the male.  The side photo is female.  
Enjoy!
