Springing Forward

If you put any stock in what plants tell you, you’d have to agree that spring’s about to pop. Don’t take my word for it, look:

Backlit against a hazy sky (with temps around 70) elm blossoms are opening.
Red maple is starting to bloom.
Another shot of red maple.
Silky willow about to open up.

incidentally, spring peepers and upland chorus frogs have been calling.

Tiny upland chorus frog, vocal sac fully extended, belts out its mating call.

So, it’s time to get out and experience these early manifestations of spring.
